Revolution Day Parade

November 20th is Revolution Day in Mexico, and there was a huge parade to honor the day. We were just down the road from the state governor, so there was a LOT of security nearby! Many of the schools have students walk to represent them, and in a city of nearly 1 million, that equals one BIG PARADE!
The military came by early on in the parade with the Mexican flag.

There were a lot of dancers!These kids re-enacted a battle scene between the peasants and the military."Pancho Villa"--the only man to ever invade the U.S.Father Hidalgo: Initiated the Revolution early when the military discovered the plans.
I'm hoping I'll be able to get a video of one of the dances on here. Hope you enjoyed the Revolution Day Parade!
