A celebration of Mexican Independence Day featured traditional dances.

¡Viva México!

Miami Dade College commemorated more than two centuries of Mexican independence with the Mexico 200+1 celebration at Kendall Campus. Presented in collaboration with the Consul General of Mexico in Miami, the vibrant celebration re-created a real Mexican plaza and featured an array of cultural events, including traditional foods and dances, live music and mariachis, and representatives from academic, cultural and social organizations. The free event, now in its ninth year, drew thousands of MDC students and faculty and local community members.
