Rosarito’s 199th Independence Day

Celebration Largest In City History


ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO---The celebration on Sept. 16 of the Mexico’s 199th Independence Day --- which included a parade and other festivities --- was the largest in city history.


Sept. 16 is the anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain.  The bicentennial celebration will be next year.


Among those viewing the parade were Brig. Gen. Alfonso Duarte, commander of the 2nd Military Zone;  Hugo Torres, mayor of Rosarito; Santos Humberto Gomez Leyva, commander Naval region II; and Jorge Montero, Rosarito’s secretary of public safety.


A large number of military units participated in the parade, a sign of support for Rosarito’s role in Mexico’s crackdown on organized crime as well as the city’s significant public safety improvements.


“This was the largest participation ever of military units, recognizing our efforts in security and crime prevention,” Torres said.


Mayor Torres said next year’s Independence Day celebration, to mark Mexico’s bicentennial year, likely will be even larger: “We already have many activities planned to honor those who made independence possible and helped build the nation.”
