Latino Heritage Month Kicks Off at Tate

That phrase means go dogs in Spanish. While that might be a popular phrase around Athens, those aren’t the only Spanish words that will be spoken around town this month.

The celebration kicked off today in Tate plaza with Mariachi Espuelas, a mariachi band from Atlanta. Check out a portion of their performance below:
