Hands-on activities include making papel picado (cut paper banners), playing Loteria (a Mexican game similar to Bingo) and crafting paper versions of the green, white and red Mexican flag. Entertainment includes a special performance by Mariachi Hermosura Juvenil (a group of talented school-age musicians), an appearance by the Ballet Folklorico Las Americas and the re-enactment of the ''grito de Dolores,'' the call for Mexican independence.
