Two years after having Día de la Independencia events in a limited way due to the pandemic, the state of Baja California will have its first major celebration next week.
Baja California Governor Marina Avila announced Mexican singers Emmanuel and Manuel Mijares as the event lead acts.
Also, the governor said local acts Mariachi La Voz de América, Conjunto Cimarrón Norteño, Banda La Chicanora and a Selena tribute singer will also take part of the event.
The Independence Day celebration has been scheduled to begin at 9:40 p.m. Thursday with a video from Mexico City with the presidential “Grito.”
Five minutes later, Gov. Avila will hold her first “Grito” ceremony. “We have put a great effort into having a great celebration that allows us to meet in a public space to celebrate,” the governor said. “This is a very significant celebration because we are going to reencounter together as a nation after all the pandemic restrictions.”
