For Las Vegas, this means thousands and thousands of Mexican visitors who have been coming to Vegas for decades for the festivities. And it makes sense, as the top Mexican entertainers are performing : Luis Miguel at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Alejandro Fernández at Mandalay Bay, legendary comedian Polo Polo at the House of Blues, and a few others.
Presidente Felipe Calderón will take to the balcony of the Zócalo (the main plaza in Mexico City) tonight to do the traditional grito de Dolores, shouting the famous words to tens of several hundred thousand people filling the Zócalo: ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! Those same grito will be heard at every party, on every plaza in the smallest of towns, and from many rooftops, including ours. No translation needed.
