Entra a la Plaza, a concert celebration of the music of Latin America, will be held on Friday, Sept. 23 from 7-10:30 p.m. in the mall area of the Abilene Christian University campus around the GATA fountain.

The concert will include music ranging from Mariachi bands to contemporary soft rock bands and will feature performances of traditional Latin American dance, including the tango and ballet folklórico.
