The annual Mexican Independence Day Parade stepped off Sunday along 26th Street, but those who missed the colorful parade can watch it on-demand on ABC7Chicago.com

An array of floats, bands and dancers were among those filling the streets of Little Village for the festivities. To recognize the Sept. 11 anniversary, the very first parade participants paid tribute to those who lost their lives that day.

ABC7 was proud to take part in the parade and to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs September 15 to October 15.
