November 20 is Revolution Day all across Mexico. In Mexico City, it means an enormous parade. And whether City residents attend the parade or not, the event rattles a big part of the City because it’s accompanied by squadrons of the Mexican Air Force. Airplanes, fighters, helicopters and all number of giant flying craft shake windows and startle cats from the middle of the City all across to the very north.
The parade is a big deal. It follows the traditional Mexico City parade route, with stands set up for viewers along the Avenida Juarez stretch of the route by the Alameda Central. It’s a good time, and includes lots of military hardware, as well as traditional bands, musical and dance performances, and more.
