Citizens4Community—working with the Sisters Latino community and several key sponsors, supporters and partners—presented Sisters’ first community-wide Fiesta de Independencia on Sept. 16. Held on Mexican Independence Day, the celebration offered Sisters Country a great opportunity to gather and make new friends while enjoying delicious food, festive music and folkloric dancing.
The acclaimed band Mariachi Los Temerosos and dancers from Folklore Luna entertained event-goers in Fir Street Park. Volunteers counted 350-plus people in attendance throughout the afternoon. Admission was free, and door prizes donated by local businesses added to the fun. This community-building event would not have been possible without generous support from local businesses, organizations and individuals.
