Dia de los Muertos Festival - the fourth annual Dia De Los Muertos Festival will be held in downtown on Saturday, October 26 from noon to 10:00 p.m. This FREE community event celebrating the Hispanic culture will feature kids activities, food trucks, arts & crafts, vendors, live entertainment, an ofrenda (offering space), shopping, contests and more.
Small Business Grants
The HBA is proud to launch a Small Business Grants program in 2019. Through funds raised from the Dia de los Muertos Festival, the organization is able to provide a cash injection to qualifying small businesses who have an immediate need or will use the funds for an expansion. An application must be completed and submitted along with supporting documents for review by the Selection Committee. A limited amount of funds are available, so unfortunately not every request can be fulfilled but the HBA is thrilled to be able to help the business community.
