Chicago's Cinco De Mayo Parade canceled due to explosive fight between Latin Kings and rival gang Satan's Disciples in broad daylight (VIDEO) |  The Gateway expert

Meanwhile in the Democratic hellhole of Chicago…

The Cinco de Mayo parade on Chicago’s Southwest Side was canceled Sunday due to gang-related fights.

“The Cinco de Mayo parade has been canceled to protect the safety of all attendees, including families and children,” police said. “The decision was made in consultation with the CPD 10th Precinct, elected officials and parade organizers.”

A major fight broke out between the Latin Kings and the rival gang Satan’s Disciples near S. Rockwell Street and Cermak.

Police say weapons arrests have been made.

WATCH (language, violence warning):

ABC7 Chicago reported:

The Cinco de Mayo parade on Chicago’s southwest side was rerouted Sunday after reports of violence in the area.

The parade has a history of disruptions. From the COVID pandemic to a series of disagreements between organizers and city officials, it wasn’t even held from 2018 to 2022. The parade only returned last year.

There is still a lot of confusion about what exactly happened to disrupt the parade.

At a glance, Sunday’s Cinco de Mayo parade was just like any other. It was lively and colorful, with entertaining musical acts from different parts of Mexico.

“We actually found it earlier when we were walking to the National Mexican Art Museum,” said parade participant Jennifer Vasquez. “We asked someone before. We weren’t even aware this was happening.”

What many parade goers didn’t notice was the behind-the-scenes drama that began about a half hour before the parade was set to depart Cemark Road from Damen Avenue in the heart of Chicago at noon. It would be a 2-mile route ending at Marshall Boulevard in Little Village, just south of Douglass Park. Instead, a large fight in the area surrounding the parade led to police issuing a cancellation notice.
