Thousands of people gathered Saturday to celebrate the third annual Puerto Rican Heritage Festival at The Shack Caribbean Seafood and Grill in Harker Heights.

Shortly after the festivities began — around 12:30 p.m. — Heights Mayor Spencer Smith signed a proclamation for the time period of Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, 2019. The proclamation declares that period of time “Hispanic Heritage Month.”
