We decided to take in the Revolution day parade in downtown La Penita. We walked with Pat and Harold down town for the 9 am start. Although today is not a holiday there is great celebration in the town of the day when Mexico basically reverted from an authoritarian type rule, to a Democracy which is still the form of rule today. Steve and Julie joined us a little later. Lots of people lined the main street for the parade.
Revolution day in Mexico is celebrated every year on November 20th. On this day Mexicans remember and celebrate the Revolution which started in 1910 and lasted for about ten years. The actual national holiday is on the third Monday of November no matter what date it is. Apparently some stores have sales on this weekend similar to Black Friday in the USA. (Don't tell the girls!) The parade was long and it was hot so we didn't stay for the whole thing. It was neat to see the kids and they were having fun participating.
