MERIDA — The latter part of this week will bring traditional parades marking Mexico’s 207th Independence Day to several cities and towns throughout Yucatan.
The largest parade will take place in Merida on Saturday Sept. 16, with thousands of uniformed school children, police officers, armed-service cadets and soldiers, bands and horsemen filing along a meandering route from Paseo de Montejo to the Plaza Grande.
Streets in Merida’s Centro will be blocked and traffic diverted from early morning hours through mid-afternoon to accommodate this lively display of devoted patriotism.
Meanwhile, a similar parade will take place in Progreso on Thursday Sept. 14 at 8 p.m., near the Municipal Palace.
The Progreso parade will return and finish at Independencia Park, where there will be demonstrations and dances, including more than 30 charros (horsemen and women), reports a statement.
“We expect families to attend this event, where we will have a spectacular cultural festival, in which we will also learn a little more about the charrería, a Mexican tradition that makes us proud to be part of our heritage,” said Progreso’s director of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports, María Isabel Hernández Tec.
Residents of other towns and cities in Yucatan will also present smaller spectacles this week to commemorate Independence Day.a
Motorists are advised to use caution and plan alternative routes to avoid traffic tie-ups during these parades.
