Mexico in 1822 

The public is invited to hear the "El Grito," (the famous "Cry" shouted by Padre Hidalgo in 1810 to begin the Mexican struggle for independence from Spain), have traditional refreshments, and take a guided tour in Spanish or English,
starting at 2:30 pm and lasting until 5:30 pm.
September 15th will also inaugurate tours at Peralta Hacienda by Spanish-speaking community tour leaders for the first time. Fifteen community members have gone through a 'history boot camp' this summer with historians incuding UC Berkeley's Alex Zaragoza. In addition, all exhibit text in this "museum of history and community" has been translated into Spanish.
National Hispanic Heritage Week, which started in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to a month, is a celebration of the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. 
Guided tours of the Antonia Peralta House are free for Fruitvale residents and children under 10, others $5.
