MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Hundreds will be celebrating the biggest Mexican Independence Day fiesta in the whole state right here in Milwaukee. 

Although the day itself isn't until Sept. 16, organizers say there's plenty to enjoy this weekend.

UMOS had to cancel the event the last two years due to the pandemic. 

This year, the parade is still not back, but there will be plenty to see, including of course, Mexican pride.

"We have carnival, activities for the kids, food, we have merchandise, a little bit of everything to make sure that we celebrate," said Carmen Lerma, UMOS organizer. 

The event goes from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10 at the UMOS center on S. Chase Avenue.
