Revolution Day in Playa

I just read that there's Revolution Day of Mexico coming up on 20th of November. How is it celebrated in Playa? Something special happening?

Usually a small parade down 30th, all the ambulances, fire trucks - anything that makes noise - and the school bands or drill teams with the high-stepping girlies - or maybe that's the Sept 16 revolution day parade (they have two, one for each revolution)? But as for danger from the Trump fiasco, nada - no problem at all (on the other hand, he isn't in office yet, either). No worries - come as you are. Bienvenidos!!

Small parade started around 8 am with drums and trumpets to greet/wake us our first morning here (we live around the corner from the church). They are still out there marching around if you want to try and catch some of the action.
