Thousands celebrating Mexican Independence Day flooded the streets in downtown Chicago overnight, creating a major traffic gridlock. Cars were decked out with Mexican Flags as people got out of their vehicles to celebrate in the streets, some even burning rubber, with car horns beeping and music playing. Mexican Independence Day has been an annual tradition in South Chicago but this year the parade was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The parade in Little Village was also canceled.
