Each year, this parade celebrates the Battle of Puebla (Batalla de Puebla) that took place on the 5th of May 1862, near Puebla City, Mexico. The battle ended in a victory over the French Army which galvanized Mexican resistance and led to France retreating completely 6 years later.

The parade also celebrates Detroit’s Latino culture, and the businesses of Southwest Detroit.
