ALAMEXican Celebration!

September 16, 2019


September 16, 1810 was the day on which the independence of Mexico was consumed, which put an end to Spanish rule. As a result of this act that unleashed a great Mexican passion, the famous “Grito de Independencia” is celebrated on the night of September 15. This celebration is usually accompanied by a great celebration among the Mexican states. The party consists of the establishment of the "Fiestas Patrias" which are constituted by mechanical games, typical Mexican foods, musical groups and folkloric presentations.

The "Grito de Dolores" according to Mexican tradition is a call that the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla gave the night of September 15.
Next to the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla came the Captain of the Mexican Realist Army Ignacio Allende and the Mexican Insurgent participating in the process of independence Juan Aldama. The "Scream" consisted of ringing the bells of the Dolores parish located in the state of Guanajuato proclaiming the beginning of the war of Independence.


The Mexican Independence Day is one of the great celebrations that have been celebrated for centuries with a series of parties where there is music, dance and traditional food that mark a milestone in Mexican culture.

Alamex did not miss this beautiful tradition and dressed in the colors of the flag with red, green and white, celebrating with great enthusiasm the day of the Independence of Mexico.
