Big Spring Park was filled with the sights and sounds of Hispanic culture Saturday during the Huntsville Hispanic Fiesta.

Art, music, salsa dancing and Zumba demonstrations were on display throughout the park. The event was a joint effort of Alabama A&M and Rosie's International Services. Organizers said the festival was a chance to bring awareness and understanding of Latin American culture to the community's youth.

"It is important to have the community come out and to recognize all the contributions the Hispanic and Latino population brings, and the richness and diversity that it adds," said organizer Nicole Hering.

National Hispanic Heritage Month runs through Oct. 15 and celebrates cultures from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.
