Downtown Woodburn, OR

It's Hispanic Heritage Month. Many of the farms in the Willamette Valley employ a large contingent of migrant workers for farm labor. A growing agriculture industry continues to lure a foreign-born population to the area. Consequently, you'll find pockets of ethnic retail outlets throughout Salem and the neighboring communities that cater to the growing number of emigrants. If anything, it brings it's fair share of animation and color to the streets.
