More popularly known as Mexican's Independence Day, Fiestas Patrias is celebrated in Mexico City as the biggest event in the city's events calendar on the September 16 every year. The city is decked out with red, green and white banners and many tiny lights line houses and streets. One of Mexico City's major streets - 20 de Novembre - is blocked-off to host the celebrations including a huge parade, music, fireworks and even face painting. If you need a flag to wave, don't despair, there are vendors on every corner selling Mexican patriotic products.
