Our celebration of Mexican Independence Day is converting after 13 years from a parade to a Car Show & Shine Event. For years our parade has been a great way to celebrate our Latino Heritage while activating Franklin Boulevard. This year we have decided on a Car Show & Shine Event due to a strong demand from our community and car clubs. We will have 350 cars cruising the district, food vendors, local brew, and activities for kids! It will be a great opportunity to enjoy looking at classic cars while exploring the amazing businesses in our district!
