On Saturday, November 20th, Puerto Vallarta celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Mexican Revolution with a parade that incorporated Marines, charros, beauty queens, folkloric dancers, bands and pimped-out pick-up trucks.

A large, appreciative crowd of patriotic citizens, along with many Americans and Canadians lined the parade route, which ran from Zona Romantica across the Rio Cuale bridge, through El Centro and Cinco de Diciembre.
The Mexican Revolution began with a November 20 uprising led by Francisco Madero against dictator Porfirio Diaz, just months after Mexico celebrated the centenary of its 1810 independence from Spain. Its representatives produced a constitution in 1917, but outbreaks of warfare continued into the 1920s.
