Itâ€™s a busy in Puerto Vallarta as the city celebrates
Mexican Independence Day on September 16th, with the traditional
lead up on September 15th with El
Grito, the traditional rebel yell of the Mexican Independence.
Grito de Dolores
or El Grito de la Independencia translates
to â€œThe Cry of Independenceâ€ and its history can be traced to 1810, when in the
little town of Dolores, near Guanajuato, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Roman
Catholic priest, cried the famous rebel yell which marked the beginning of the
Mexican War of Independence.
Today, El Grito is a popular way to show oneâ€™s patriotic pride
and celebrate Mexico with family and friends.
Parades, concerts, parties and televised events will be held
nationwide. Here in beautiful Puerto
Vallarta, the Malecon will be bustling with locals and visitors in anticipation
of the Mayor of the city leading the crowd in the traditional â€œViva Mexico!
Viva Mexico! Viva Mexico!â€ from the balcony of City Hall at 11pm on Sunday
Whether youâ€™re a visitor, a new arrival or a long-time
resident of Mexico, taking part in Independence Day celebrations around the
city will make you feel that you are part of the heart of Mexico.
