Hispanic

Hispanic heritage month kicks off today, and the Elkhorn Valley Museum has events to show the heritage all weekend long.

The fun all starts tomorrow with storytelling in the Hispanic oral tradition.  Museum director Libby McKay gives a little insight on what to expect.

"A great storyteller is coming up from Omaha who is going to do some storytelling and talk about that tradition which is present in so many cultures.  With Hispanic Heritage month kicking off we thought it was a great time to bring her up."

That event is free to the public and starts at 5:30 p.m. at the museum.

The museum has also partnered with the Hispanic business council in hosting the Hispanic Heritage Festival at Verges Park from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m on Saturday.  That event is also free to the public, but McKay recommends bringing money for the foods trucks and the raffle drawing.
