15 de Septiembre – Grito de Independencia

Written on December 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

Last 15th of September, IE Mexico Club invited more than 400 students representing IE international diversity, to celebrate celebrated Mexico’s Independence Day amid Mexican music, customs and wrestling masks. A great opportunity to celebrate in the heart of Madrid this traditional Mexican party along with friends, with enough Mexican food, candies, and beverages to keep the party going until the actual “Cry of Dolores”, event displayed in the monitors of the place and shouted by all.

This day, Mexicans commemorate the event, occurred near Guanajuato, that established the first milestone in the Independence war. Every 15 of September, the president of Mexico rings the bell that originally tolled back in 1810 at the main balcony of the National Palace in front of thousands of Mexicans, followed by a shout of patriotism naming important national heroes finishing with the iconic shout of “¡Viva Mexico!”. Cry of Dolores is usually known as “the Shout of Independence”, and is the most important national day.
