One thought on “2012 Fiestas Patrias Parking, Traffic and Parade Route information”
  1. I just love this parade and El Grito! Makes me feel so proud to be from Jalisco! (Which is the BEST State in Mexico by way:) Why not ask readers which State they think is best and why? Hope to see all of you New Santa Ana readers this weekend! I like 4th of July but Fiestas Patrias is more of a family event and the parade is first class!
