Vista L.A.: Mexican Independence Parade hits East Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- East Los Angeles got a taste of Mexico on Sunday as thousands turned out for the annual Mexican Independence Day Parade. Vista L.A. was there to soak up all the sights and sounds.
The parade began at Mednik Avenue, rolling down Cesar Chavez Avenue right through the heart of East Los Angeles, all the way to Gage Avenue.
Mexican singer and actress Graciela Beltran served as the grand marshal of the event. Others who participated in the event included City Councilman Jose Huizar, Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina and L.A. City controller Wendy Gruel.
Also, the parade festival was just around the corner from where the parade started. It ran along Mednik Avenue from Cesar Chavez Avenue to First Street. There was plenty tasty food and festive activities for parade-goers.
