I think the government might be on to something changing the routes of the parade(s) this year. We had one pass close by the house the other night so went out for a look. I normally would not take the family downtown and fight for a parking spot unless a family member were participating. In this case, we and people from other neighboring colonias) were able to avoid all of that hassle and just go for a walk.

I believe last night, it was held in Villas del Sol. 80,000 residents, more or less. I am sure the turnout was better than it would have been in Centro but will wait to see photos.

This government seems to work in a more logical way that some past versions. Hell, their resurfaciing Constituyentes with anything other than grease is an improvement over most. And the fact that they have eliminated those stupid-ass triangular parking sports in Colosio is a winner too.

Does the parade in Cozumel run every night this week or just on certain days. Also what time does it start and what time is the last ferry back to Playa.

Tonight. Last parade.
Parade starts around 6:00 but could be 7:00 by the time it reaches you.
Last ferry (Ultramar) is at 10:00 but expect it to be very crowded.

Actually, tonight, the parade went west on Constituyentes and then headed north on either 307 or the parellel service road. Lots of great floats tonight that were not it the parade last night.
Last night the parade came west on Constituyentes to the glorieta at AV. 5 and Constituyentes, then headed south down AV. 5

I swear I saw a map on facebook and then saw some participants walking down 25th towards Juarez to get ready. Sorry if my info was misleading.
