Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Mexico with the internationally touring group of mariachis and ballet folklorico dancers: México en el Corazón.

During the event local Top Chef finalist, Evelyn Garcia, will “takeover” the Lake House to serve a special, one-time only menu commemorating the night.

More than 65 performers create a magical night with gorgeous costumes, music and culture. A completely revamped performance provides the perfect opportunity to make new memories at this popular yearly event.

The new Mexican Consul General, Maria Elena Orantes Lopez, will lead a reenactment of El Grito, which commemorates Mexican Independence Day.
