Held throughout the County of Los Angeles, Latino Heritage LA festivities will range from sophisticated art exhibits, family-friendly festivals to live concerts.  This variety of events will attract Latinos of all walks of life, from the social media/tech-savvy millennials, middle-income families, to career professionals.
