The North Shore Hispanic Association (NSHA) would like to thank everyone who came out to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month on October 7th. We would also like to thank the City of Malden, specifically the Public Works Department and the Senior/MTEC Center staff for helping to make the transition from outside to indoors due to the never-ending weekend rain!
Cultural celebrations foster respect and appreciation for each other. When we celebrate our differences, as well as what we have in common, it connects us all.
The event was opened with a parade of flags down Pleasant Street with members of the community, the girl and boy scouts, the Crown Princesses from Honduras, Malden High School Civics, Math Club, Key Club Malden Catholic and the Mayor. The celebration included live music from the Primera Clase Band and they had everyone on their feet! We had local artisans and vendors selling a broad array of cultural items and food along with community information tables providing vital resources for our residents.
