Today is Mexican Revolution Day and there were parades in all the towns across Mexico to celebrate! This is the parade that was in Progreso today, there was also one in Chelem, and Merida. All the school children practice their steps, and dances for weeks for this parade. We saw the high schoolers practicing in the Chelem square this morning as we went into Progreso. It is a happy festival time for the families. There was food and a carnaval set up in the Progreso town square today too.
