Mayor Morse invites the public to join Colombians around the world in celebration of Colombian Independence Day. On July 20th, we will commemorate the formation of the country’s first representative council against Spanish rule in 1810, when Colombia achieved complete independence.

Please join Colombian residents of Holyoke at City Hall in their celebration! The festivities will start with an opening ceremony, including a Proclamation by Holyoke’s Honorable Mayor Alex Morse on Wednesday, July 20th, 2016 from 5-7pm. Some of the first Colombians settled in Holyoke nearly 40 years ago will be recognized. There will also be live music, food, and traditional dance performances.

We hope you will attend and celebrate with us!
