The Baylor University Hispanic Student Association will hosts its annual Hispanic heritage observance during the month of October.

This year's celebration will feature a culture show to be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5, in Kayser Auditorium in the Hankamer School of Business. A fashion show will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, in the Barfield Drawing Room. The events are designed to educate students about the Hispanic culture.

"The fashion show is a collaboration between HSA and the Association of Black Students," said Luis Carmona, president of the Hispanic Student Association. Tickets are $5 with part of the proceeds being donated to the American Red Cross and its New York City relief effort.

A festival, Noche de Carnaval, will take place from 7 to 11 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, in Minglewood Bowl. It will feature live entertainment, food, drinks and games.

Other events such as the Hispanic Festival, game day and a tailgate picnic will provide an opportunity for students to learn more about the Spanish-speaking world.

The festivities will conclude with a "Kid Day" on Wednesday, Oct. 31, in which members of HSA will spend part of the day with young children from the Waco community.
