El Grito de Dolores marks the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence usually celebrated each year on September 15. For more than twenty years, the celebration of El Grito has been sponsored by the City of Los Angeles. This celebration entertains residents and viewers with a reenactment of the historic cry and bell ringing by Father Miguel Hidalgo. This year we also celebrate the independence day of other Latin American countries whose independence day is also in September including Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The event will feature musical entertainment headlined by six-time Grammy Award-Winner Los Tigres del Norte and El Charro de Mexico Ezequiel Pena on the historic steps of City Hall and a family friendly festival at Grand Park.
