We were happy to discover that we were in Mexico City for the celebration of the 111th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution and there was going to be a parade!
We saw the preparations for the parade and everyone we asked confirmed a parade was indeed scheduled, yet none could tell us when it would begin.
We were lucky that we were in the right place at the right time and were able to watch the entire parade.
Besides horses, there were marching bands, dancers, an orchestra, floats representing Mexico’s states, antique cars, and lots of enthusiastic marchers dressed in beautiful costumes.
The still photos are colorful but they can’t capture the enthusiasm, music and dancing as well as video can. I hope you enjoy this 5-minute video of several segments from the parade.
