The holiday has been commemorated in Mexico on that same date since 1925
as a celebration of the Children’s Rights Declaration by then Mexican President
Alvaro Obregon and then Minister of Education José Vasconcelos. It is primarily celebrated in schools. And every school in Mexico celebrates the natural resource that children represent. In that spirit, Floricanto has invited the Kawalea Polynesian Children’s Dance Group, the children of Kayamanan Ng Lahi, Tierra Blanca, the Lula Washington Youth Dance Ensemble along with The Floricanto Institute and Sandino Flores to participate and perform in Floricanto’s 2nd Annual Día del Niño.
