LITTLE VILLAGE — The 24th Annual Little Village Fest ended with colorful celebration on 26th Street on Sunday.

The Mexican Independence Parade started, of course, with a couple shots of tequila and a ribbon-cutting celebrating the renovation of the Little Village Arch over 26th Street and continued with marching bands, parade princesses, sombrero-wearing cowboys on horseback and more Mexican flags than anyone could count.
