DENVER** -- Broncos fans from the Denver Hispanic community celebrated their love for the blue and orange at Broncos en Español Wednesday evening at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the annual free event featured face painting, fun games for kids and a chance for fans to meet and greet current Broncos players and alumni.
Center/guard Max Garcia, wide receiver Jordan Norwood, kicker Brandon McManus, inside linebacker Brandon Marshall and safeties David Bruton Jr. and Omar Bolden were among those in attendance to sign autographs and take plenty of selfies with attendees.
For Garcia, the event meant more to him as a member of the Hispanic community.
The Denver Broncos celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with Broncos en Espanol Wednesday evening at Sports Authority Field.
"It means a lot just to celebrate our culture in the month of September and be out here with everyone and get to interact with [them] and speak Spanish with them," said Garcia. "A lot of kids, I answered back in Spanish and they had no idea I speak Spanish. I'm just loving it."
While each player was excited to meet all of the Broncos' loyal fans, McManus was proud that the team has reached out to the local community.
"Denver has a huge Hispanic community and we're trying to grow football globally," said McManus. "Just to enjoy everyone coming out here to enjoy the Broncos tonight is really a great blessing."
The celebration was presented by Noble Energy with supporting partners Verizon, King Soopers, Rocky Mountain Health Plans, Sports Authority, Univision Colorado and U.S. Bank.
