Mexican Independence Celebration – Join in the Festivities As a Nation Rejoices for Their Freedom
The Mexican Independence Celebration Playa del Carmen or El Grito de la Independencia is held on the sixteenth of September to celebrate this day in 1810 when Mexico became an independent nation free from Spanish rule. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo does not represent this historical day, but rather the Mexican Independence Celebration Playa del Carmen. The celebration begins with the President of Mexico ringing a bell at the National Palace at approximately eleven in the evening on September 15th. A cry of patriotism is then held immediately after to honor the heroes of this important day. The initial proceedings are heard by a crowd gathered at the Plaza de la Constitucion, which is one of the largest public squares in the world. At the end, the President of Mexico shouts “Viva Mexico” and then rings the bell once more.
The Mexican Independence Celebration Playa del Carmen kicks off with the ceremony described above and then transforms into an extensive fiesta with several fun attractions. Visitors have the opportunity to hear the military band play the country’s national anthem. On the morning of Mexico’s Independence Day, a large military parade is held from Zocalo to Paseo de la Reforma.
