Celebrating Independence Day.
The Night of September 15 celebrates Mexico’s independence from Spain. It’s a night of proud celebration and tradition in México.
Governor Víctor Manuel Castro Cosío will reenact the traditional Grito de Independencia at 10 p.m. commemorating the 211th anniversary of the start of Mexico’s independence in Plaza de la Reforma of the Government Palace, La Paz.
Fever and Joy, adorned by a choreographed dance of fireworks, the spectacle to cover in national colors the cities skyline, the second that Governor Castro Cosio waves our flag, at the scream of “Viva México!” cannons fire the colorful flame of celebration cascading amidst the stars, over the dock and pier (El Muelle y Malecon), over Cerro Atravesado and Colina de la Cruz, over the Government Palace above all of La Paz to be seen anywhere, as available as the sky itself.
Later into the night, to recognize and celebrate health service workers, there’s to be a concert by recognized Mexican actress-singer Lucero, this celebration will be held at 11:30 p.m. in the City’s Theater. This concert and the main ceremony of independence will be transmitted via the official social media of the Government of Baja California Sur, as well as traditional media.
As tradition goes, a civic ceremony will take place at 9:00 a.m. on September 16, in the Plaza de la Reforma of the Government Palace, La Paz. But given the current Covid safety protocols the Military parade that usually accompanies it will be absent. Governor Víctor Manuel Castro Cosío reassured that public safety is still the first priority for his administration.
As such and in line with covid regulations, there will be no local Civic Ceremony or Festivities in Cabo San Lucas and San José Del Cabo.
We’ll stay home, and watch Lucero on Tv.
