Puerto Peñasco’s celebration of the 110th Anniversary of Mexico’s Revolution will still go on this November, though via a series of virtual events after suspension of the traditional parade.
Armando González García, Municipal Civic Engagement Director, detailed this decision is due to inadequate health conditions with persisting Covid-19 cases across the community, current precautionary protocols, and instructions to prevent large gatherings.
Even so, González García indicated his office is working with teachers and principals from area schools to make sure commemoration of Mexico’s Revolution does not go unnoticed. Despite the lack of in-person classes, the Civil Engagement Director is certain various schools will still participate in this very atypical festivity.
As more information becomes available, González Garcia invites the community to tune in virtually to celebrate Mexico’s heritage via online programs in lieu of the usual 20 de noviembre parade. He underscored the goal is to reaffirm Mexico’s essence and the importance of the 110th Anniversary of the Mexican Revolution.
