Spanish heritage month is here, and members of the Spanish community in Wichita Falls kicked off their celebration with a parade on Saturday morning through the Wichita Falls downtown area. Members of the Wichita Falls Police Department also participated in the parade with the DARE Mustang and police SUV. Our own Chief Borrego acted as the Grand Marshal for the parade. Local leaders were also present at the review stand and participated in the event. Spanish heritage month officially starts September 15th. It recognizes the contributions made by the Hispanic and Latino cultures and to celebrate their heritage.
