The melodic thump of a drum and the piercing howls of conch shells filled the playground at Heritage Elementary School on Friday as Aztec dancers kicked off the school's celebration of Mexican Independence Day.

The festivities, which included dancing, tamales and a soccer tournament, were meant to go beyond simply marking the anniversary of Mexico's independence from Spain in 1810. They were a way to give the community a closer look at the traditions of Mexico's people and culture, said Francisco Trujillo, site coordinator for Community Partnership for Families.
