When most of us think of Hispanic culture, I assume our first thoughts are of all the great food dishes associated with it. I mean, Hispanic culture gave us burritos, tacos, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas, and more. Fortunately, we have several great restaurants in the Evansville area where we can get our fix of any one of those dishes whenever the mood strikes, but Hispanic culture is more than incredible food. It's filled with rich traditions each with deep meanings. All of which will be on display during the upcoming Fiesta Evansville event at Wesselman Woods.
