A parade to independence season


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Saturday's annual Fiestas Patrias parade in the South Park neighborhood turns the corner at 14th Avenue South after coming down South Henderson Street. The celebration of Mexican and Latino culture and the independence of many Latin countries continues noon-6 p.m. Sunday at Seattle Center. In the same way that the United States celebrates the Fourth of July, Mexico and several Latin American countries observe their independence during the month of September, including Belize, Brazil, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Chile. Sea Mar Community Health Centers' Fiestas Patrias celebrates independence of these and all countries of Latin America.
