Mi Mexico Monday: Revolution Day Parade


Yesterday was Revolution Day here in Mexico and as usual, there was a big parade to celebrate.

There were lots of little Revolucionarios and Adelitas,







Escaramusas



and pretty girls dancing.



And being that it was also Physical Fitness Day, there were little cheerleaders



and athletes doing pyramides and tablas ritmicas (sincronized fitness routines).



But my favorite part of the parade was watching Ashley and her classmates singing and dancing as cheerleading clowns.






How was your weekend?

  6. Too cute! And yes, super fun! I'm not big on parades of any kind (claustrophobia kicks in as do the flashbacks of the chaotic Puerto Rican parades in NYC) but this may be one I would not pass. I love the last photo :-)

  16. I didn't go to the parade here.  When I was told there was one, I had no idea what it was for, as you might know!

    I can live through you!
