Spanish Fun Program and Karina Travel Connectors are returning to the SPL with their Bilingual Storytelling series! This program is a family oriented Spanish immersion for those who practice the language or for those who want to learn. The program includes bilingual storytelling, music and dance, dynamic games, and arts and crafts!

In celebration of Mexican-American culture we'll hear The Real Cinco de Mayo Story! Is Cinco de Mayo the date when Mexico celebrates independence? Learn the true history behind the often misunderstood holiday... What does Cinco de Mayo mean to Mexicans and to the US? When did the celebration start?
