The parade organized to commemorate the 155th anniversary of the Battle of Puebla began at 10:30 a.m. on Friday at the monument of the General Ignacio Zaragoza in the city of Puebla. The special guest of the event was Secretary of Agricultural, Territorial and Urban Development Rosario Robles Berlanga who attended in lieu of President Peña Nieto.
