Dia de la Revolucion — Mexico Independence Day

Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolucion) is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori.

Our town celebrates with a grand parade comprised mostly of the children — school groups, dance groups, sports groups — with a few cowboys and their horses thrown in. After all this isn’t just a beach town. It’s also ranch country.

Here are some little revolutionaries.
