The City of Reno held its second annual Fiesta event to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at Wingfield Park on Saturday. The park was filled music from all of Latin America and included performances by dancers and artists. People danced to the music or relaxed on the lawn, taking in the Latin experience.
