Parade, community celebration, food and dance. These are just a few things you can expect this year at The LULAC QC Fiesta Parade in East Moline (formerly known as the Mexican Independence Day Parade)
For a few years now every September downtown East Moline dresses in green, red and white and the community comes together to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. This year the celebration will be part of the LULAC QC Fiesta Week on September 18 starting at 11:00 AM. The day will start with a parade, but the parade is only beginning to a day filled with fun.
After the parade is over, participants can stay for music and dance. There will be a presentation by the Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico and the Glenview Mariachi Band will delight participants with great music. Food vendors will be present to offer their best dishes to the public. After the presentations stay and dance the night away because there will be dance from 6PM to 9:30PM.
This year the organizers of the event Abel y Juanita Zertuche are getting help from the LULAC Councils of Moline and Davenport. The organizers invite everyone interested in participation in the parade to call (309) 737-5915 to register to participate.
The celebration of the Mexican Independence Day will take place in Downtown East Moline across the Monarca store.
Mark your calendars and come on September 18 to celebrate and enjoy the day with the family and friends. The fun starts at 11 AM. Come out to downtown East Moline to celebrate Mexican culture with parade, dance and entertainment.
