Today is Cinco de Mayo, “a day of Mexican pride and heritage,” as it’s been described. Today people will celebrate with delicious Mexican foods, festivals, music, and more. And I thought it was a great opportunity to highlight a very special annual event that takes place at the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum each year—Día Latino.
Spanish interpreters will be available throughout the Ark, museum, and grounds to assist during the course of the event.
This year on October 16 at the Ark Encounter and October 17 at the Creation Museum (45 minutes from each other), guests will enjoy touring our state-of-the-art exhibits, meeting our animals, playing with their children on our playgrounds, learning from Spanish-speaking apologetics speakers, and even a special Spanish Sunday morning service at the Creation Museum. Spanish interpreters will be available throughout the Ark, museum, and grounds to assist during the course of the event.
Día Latino is always an exciting event and a wonderful outreach to those across the US, and internationally, who are Spanish speakers. Not only do these special days allow these families to have a wonderful time together, experiencing everything the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter have to offer, but it’s a visit with an eternal impact as families are equipped with answers, encouraged to trust God’s Word, and presented with the saving gospel message.
It’s a great way for everyone, no matter what language they speak, to be able to learn from our exhibits.
If you or someone you know speaks Spanish but can’t make it to this event, or speaks any other language, we’re excited that the Google Translate app, easily installed on smartphones, enables guests to enjoy our exhibits in their own language at any time during the year. Simply install the app, hold it up to one of our signs, and the app automatically translates the text (and it will translate audio also)! It’s a great way for everyone, no matter what language they speak, to be able to learn from our exhibits.
I encourage you to mark your calendars for Día Latino 2021. And, remember, children 10 and under are free through 2021, and there’s no limit to the number of children you can bring for free (though, of course, the children must be accompanied by at least one paying adult). Plan your visit today by visiting our event pages, where more details are coming soon.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
