Friday Nov. 20 is the 105th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution of 1910, and a major parade through the streets of downtown Merida will cause street closures during late afternoon and early evening hours.
Motorists, pedestrians and users of public transportation should be aware that their accustomed routes may be affected by the parade, which will take place from about 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The colorful parade, which will include more than 6,000 marchers from schools, police, armed forces and other government and civic organizations, will follow a route through central Merida from the Paseo de Montejo to San Juan Park.
Streets closed temporarily for the parade are expected to reopen about 7:30 p.m. and traffic should resume normal patterns.
