Hispanic Heritage Month Block Party!

In celebration of Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month, Divina Hernandez (she/they) and La Sociedad Latinx (LSL) will be hosting a block party on October 6, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The event will take place on Stonehouse lawn across from East Campus Commons. Hernandez hopes to bring her Puerto Rican culture to Bridgewater, and she has found the perfect way to do that in a block party that encapsulates community, celebration, food, and love. She says that in her culture, “Food is a love language.”

The block party will feature food catered from “Tropical Llama,” a restaurant located in Raynham that specializes in Dominican flavors and cuisine. Hernandez says that this has been something that has been on her mind for a significant amount of time.
“I’ve been having this idea for about a year. While going to a predominately white institution, there is not really that feeling of growing up around people of your culture, and I wanted to bring that to Bridgewater. I think now Latinx heritage month is the perfect month to do it.”

Hernandez is most excited about collaborating with LSL for this event, which she believes will be the perfect opportunity to eat, dance, and celebrate what it means to be Latinx or Hispanic. If food, community, and celebration excites you, then don’t miss Divina’s block party on October 6th, at 5:00 pm on Stonehouse lawn!
