Mexican Independence Day Celebrations Begin

September 16 is considered Mexico’s most important patriotic holiday.

Students at La Cumbre Junior High kicked off the Celebrando el..Grito De Independencia De Mexico after school Friday.

Joined by a guest from the Mexican consulate in Oxnard, the students rang a symbolic church bell like the one that called on people to rise up against the Spanish Crown in 1810.

Independence took another 11 years.

Rep. Lois Capps wore a Mexican dress to the event. Capps thanked the school principal for allowing many of the school children too learn history and feel connected to their heritage and traditions.
