News

This month is National Hispanic Heritage Month and it’s also the 1 year anniversary for the Peoria Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. To honor both of these, a supporting event was held Sunday called Fiestas Patrias.

Food vendors, guest speakers and dancers were just a few of the things to enjoy.

Members of the Big Table got the chance to talk about important topics related to the Hispanic community.

“Business owners, they take a different type of initiative and different type of ownership of a community,” said Christell Frausto, President of the Greater Peoria Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “We can come together and support each other and just grow from there, grow together.”

The Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce is just getting started. It plans to hold many more events in Peoria this year.
