There may not be a Mexican Independence Day parade this year due to the pandemic but it doesn't mean the celebration is off. Localish LA takes you along the parade route, down Cesar Chavez Ave in East LA, to showcase some of the local landmarks and favorite eateries that keep traditions alive.

EAST LOS ANGELES -- The East Los Angeles Mexican Independence Day parade is the largest parade honoring the holiday outside of Mexico. Due to the pandemic, festivities were halted last year and again this year. However, Localish LA found a way to celebrate: by taking you down the parade route, along Cesar Chavez Avenue, to showcase some of the local landmarks and favorite eateries that keep traditions alive. Along the way, we get to know the local residents, and learn about the history of the 1810 Mexican Independence movement.
