Foxborough Elementary School campus was transformed into a colorful pageant of cultures Thursday as students celebrated diversity at the school's annual multicultural parade. About 440 students, dressed in festive clothes, caps and sashes, marched around the school and entertained an audience of classmates and parents with folk songs and dances from Mexico, Germany, Native Americans, Russia, Israel and China. "It was fun," said Morgan Sheedy, 7, whose second-grade class studied about Russia.

It was 175 years ago that Spanish forces finally--after an 11-year war--gave up control of Mexico. It may not have the same oomph as the Fourth of July for some of us, but Sept. 16--"16 de Septiembre," as it's officially known--is an important annual event for many Latinos in Orange County.
