Día de la Revolución Parade in La Peñita

Día de la Revolución (Mexican Revolution Day) takes place on November 20th and commemorates the Mexican revolution of 1910 led by Francisco Madero. To celebrate, there is always a mid-morning parade along the Avenida in La Peñita starting at 9am. Many of the local school children are dressed in costumes, plus there are bands, dancing horses and much more. Here are a few of my favorite photos from today’s parade…

    These are all lovely photos and really give a feel for how much effort goes into the costumes and amount of civic pride displayed by the school children... and the adults look pretty happy too!

    Nice job, Ally. I took only a few photos today, but it is remarkable; from hundreds of kids, how often we shot the same ones. Tom

      I know! That's why said that you must have been either a few steps in front or behind me (on your Facebook page). Kind of odd, huh!?
