This year's Mexican Independence Day parade brought a few curious onlookers out of their houses, including Robert McGlothlin and daughter Crystal, 6. McGlothlin says that since he is from California, the event was a familiar sight. After the parade a few hundred people--not all Hispanic--attended a downtown celebration. The September 16 holiday commemorates the beginning of Mexico's revolution against Spain in 1810.
