Kumbancha, a Latin-American band from Quebec City, gave Mexican rhythm to the enthusiastic crowd.

On September 14, the Centre communautaire Mgr-de-Laval in Beauport hosted the seventh edition of La Fiesta Noche Mexicana. "The goal is to share our culture with Quebecers and among Mexican immigrants. We are also celebrating the anniversary of our War of Independence from Spain, which began on September 16, 1810," said Rosario Melgarejo, the Fiesta coordinator.
