2009 Mexican Independence Day Parade

One of the most colorful parades in Manhattan is the Mexican Independence Day Parade. The parade celebrates Mexico's independence from Spain. The parade began in the 1990s. The Mexican Independence Parade is a great celebration that brings together many colorful floats, musical and artistic groups, dancers representing different regions of Mexico, and community leaders. I captured some of the parade participants during the parade last Sunday, September 20th on Madison Avenue and 27th Street.
