    D.C.'s Hispanic population is booming. Now, almost half a million Hispanics call the region home, up from just 30,000 as recently as 1990.

    That growth is helping to boost the region's economy, with Hispanic businesses making a big impact on the region. It's also bringing new cultural experiences. And it's challenging some school districts, who are adapting to the growth and changing to help students learning English.

    News4's Richard Jordan, Erika Gonzalez and David Culver took a look at the boom in our special report, Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

    Watch on News4 Saturday at 10 a.m., or watch on Cozi Friday at 7 p.m. (Click here for Cozi listings.) It's also available on Comcast On Demand.

    Below are some of the highlights of our special.
