Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative

Building bridges and cultural understanding through the celebration of the Hispanic and Latinx community in the Tri-Cities area.

The Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative is an outgrowth of the 2019 Grand Haven Hispanic Heritage Fiesta. We are creating a new 501c3 to continue and broaden the aims of last year’s Fiesta. We hope to celebrate the Hispanic Heritage and the Latinx members of our community and build bridges between the Hispanic community and the rest of the residents of the Tri-Cities area.
