Images: 64th Annual Fiesta Day Parade in Sterling and Rock Falls

 

Fiesta Day Parade is a tradition that is more than six decades old and still going strong in the Sauk Valley Area.

This tradition not only celebrates Mexican Independence Day, but also it is there to honor the variety of rich and colorful cultural contributions that Hispanics brought to this region of the country. After 60 years of great celebrations planned by the Latin American Social Club in Sterling now the torch of carrying on with this tradition is passed to The Hispanic Business Leaders’ Committee and the Sauk Valley Area Chamber of Commerce.

This year’s parade was the best in recent years with many colorful and engaging floats that kept kids and adults alike entertained.

After the parade The Mexican Folkloric Dance Company of Chicago had a great performance at the Grandon Civic Center.

Hola America news was one of the many proud sponsors of this parade and we invite you next Sunday September 18 to the LULAC QC Fiesta Parade in Downtown East Moline at noon.
