“Mexican American Pepe is excited for the parade he and his family will be attending that day. They have a traditional Mexican breakfast, dress up in cultural attire, and join the other participants who hail from other Latin American countries. All races and geographical areas are represented, from North America to Central America, the Caribbean, and South America.
