Rodrigo Llamas, 3, whose older sister attends Berkeley, waves a Mexican flag at the Raza student organizations' Fiestas Patrias celebration in Pauley Ballroom. His mother, Maria Llamas, looks on. Festivities included an art display, spoken word and dance performances, contests, a march through Berkeley streets led by a mariachi band and a midnight reenactment of "los gritos," a tradition honoring the start of the Mexican Revolution.

Fiestas Patrias, honoring all the Latin American independence days, coincides with the kickoff of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Noah Berger photo.
