Sunday is Mexican Independence Day, and some people in Coachella celebrated all day long.
The Coachella Chamber of Commerce and the City of Coachella held their annual fiesta, "El Grito", at Veterans Park in Coachella.'
This free event featured live entertainment, food vendors, a taco contest, kids' games, and a local Mariachi band -- all to celebrate the pride of the Mexican culture.
"My parents are Mexican, I was born here, but my parents are Mexican. It brings a little bit of our culture to the United States and we like to share it with everyone," Anabel Castillo said.
The celebration went until 9:00 Sunday night.
