More than 40 thousand people attended the Plaza Grande last night, to witness how Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal headed for the first time in his administration the traditional “Grito” ceremony to commemorate the 209 anniversary of the Independence of Mexico.
From the central balcony of the Government Palace, Vila Dosal, with the national flag in his hands, recalled the call to the armed struggle for the independence of our country that priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla made on the dawn of September 16, 1810, protocol witnessed by the thousands of children, youth and adults that filled the heart of the Historic Center of Merida.
Afterwards, the Governor witnessed, along with his wife, civil and military authorities, as well as the thousands of attendees, the fireworks show that, with multicolored lights, illuminated the sky of the Yucatecan capital and the faces of those who gathered to witness this act and enjoy this popular Mexican festivity.
Once the ceremony was over, the audience enjoyed the free concert offered by La Arrolladora Banda el Limón, conducted by René Camacho, a popular Mexican musical group that made the audience dance and sing for more than two hours.
