September 16th is the day of the Military Parade in Mexico. For some it might be a surprise to see another’s country marching too, like Germany, US, France, Peru, Canada and many others. The parade’s purpose is to celebrate more than 200 years of independence and it is performed every year. It takes place in Mexico City all along Reforma Avenue, which is one of the main streets of the city. There is also a display of air and ground armament, but in times like this I preferred to show only the colorful side of it and forget a bit about what could be seen as means to war.
There is also thousands of people gathered on the streets to see the parade pass by. I will show you some of that in my next post.
