Get ready for Somos Southlake 2022!

This week’s Minute with the Mayor is all about National Hispanic Heritage Month!

It’s time again for the City of Southlake’s 2nd Annual Fiesta, Somos Southlake, which will be held on Sunday, October 2, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. in Town Square. Southlake community members are invited to participate in the event, which is aimed at learning about Hispanic American culture.

The Mayor sat down with Somos Southlake Board Member Carolina Del Calvo to learn all about the upcoming festivities.

“Seeing the community come together and celebrate all these different cultures that are within the Hispanic culture is really cool,” said Del Calvo.

A group of Southlake neighbors came together to establish Somos Southlake as a means of celebrating and commemorating Hispanic American contributions to the community.

Additionally, Mayor Huffman expressed his appreciation for the event’s diversity.

“One of the things I like about bringing my family to one of these cultural events whether it is Somos Southlake or the other ones we have in the Town Square, is the opportunity to make new friends, to experience new cultures, and ultimately to learn about where we all come from and what makes us all unique,” he said.

The event will include live music representing different genres and countries, authentic arts and crafts, as well as food trucks.For more information, visit us online visitsouthlaketexas.com.
