for a traditional celebration of "La Independence de Mexico" with the presentation and singing of the "The "Mexican National Anthem", also known by its incipit "Mexicans, at the cry of war".  We are honored to have Carlos González GutiérrezCónsul General from Mexico to lead in this amazing celebration.  

At 11 pm on September 15th every year, government officials in every city, town, or community in Mexico arrive at their main square in the city center to perform El Grito, or, "the shout." Residents are gathered there awaiting to echo the cheers commemorating the nation's heroes.

The history is as follows: in the wee hours of September 16th, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla took an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, rang the bell of his parish (in what is now Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato) and called for an uprising that would culminate in the proclamation of Mexico as a nation independent from Spain.
