The kickoff will feature food from local Hispanic vendors as well as a colorful showcase of Hispanic art and performances.
The City of Orlando recognizes the important role our Hispanic community plays in our society and continues to reach out to our growing and vibrant Hispanic residents through the creation of two municipal offices: The Multicultural Affairs Office, created this year to generate community partnerships, build strong communications bonds and provide a point of contact to multicultural community organizations and residents towards enhance the quality of life of constituents; and the Hispanic Office for Local Assistance (HOLA), which was open in 2006 to connect the residents, families, businesses and newcomers to Orlando with its City departments, government agencies, community-based and professional organizations, with the information, resources and tools related to housing, healthcare services, educational opportunities and many other resources.
