Rainbow-draped Mexican folk dancers and plenty of music (both live and blasted from speakers) enlivened a stretch of Cermak Road at the annual Cinco de Mayo parade in Little Village last weekend.
Crowds gathered along the entire parade route despite the dreary weather Sunday to commemorate the holiday and celebrate Mexican culture among caballeros, student marching bands, and beautifully ornate costumes.
