Los Angeles City Council and Councilmembers Monica Rodriguez and Paul Krekorian will host the opening ceremony for the Mexican Armenian Cultural Week in the City of Los Angeles on Friday, Massis Post reported.
The week-long event (February 2-9) honors two cultures with deep roots and similarities in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is home to the largest population of Armenians in the world outside of Armenia, and about 3.5 million residents in the region are of Mexican heritage. Generations of Armenian and Mexican Americans have shaped the City’s rich economy and culture.
Various public events, art exhibitions and educational activities will be held in the city within a week of the Armenian and Mexican culture.
