National Hispanic American Heritage Month runs Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, and the first annual Festival del Taco is a great way to celebrate. Tomorrow, Sept. 15, gorge on tacos at the first annual Festival del Taco in Opelousas at the Farmers' Market Pavilion from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. presented by Morado Original and LA REVISTA.

Vendors will travel in from as far away as Baton Rouge to serve up fresh and delicious tacos, including Fiesta Bakery, Amigos, Rio Bravo, Tortilla Soup, Taco San Luis, Kassava, Los Tres Hermanos and Azul Tequila - plus Raspados will be serving snow cones.

To get to the pavilion, take exit 19B on I-49 and travel to Le Vieux Village at 828 E. Landry St.
