A dance tops off the celebration Saturday night at St. Peters Church. Residents will name their Miss Indepencia at the dance. Those participating say they enjoy the chance to share culture.
"What it is basically is to try to bring the two communities together. The Latino and the non-Latino community so we can all enjoy a special celebration together," explained Claro founder, Carrie Tyler.
The event also included a special proclamation of Latin American Independence.
