'Coco Day' celebrated at Los Angeles City Hall

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles celebrated "Coco Day" in honor of the Pixar smash hit and Latino-centric movie "Coco."

Councilmember Gil Cedillo said the animated feature sends a sobering social message during these turbulent political times. The voice cast is predominantly Latino and many of those actors grew up in Los Angeles.

A large party was held at City Hall, with a mariachi band to kick off the event.

The celebration also coincided with the release of the movie's DVD and Blu-Ray.

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of this station.
