Does Cancun do anything for July 4th or is it just an American Holiday?

If they do celebrate it, where is the hotspot?

For the Fourth of July in Cancun, they'll raise the huge American Flag over the lagoon, have a parade down the Hotel Zone strip ending at El Rey where Iguana Wanna sponsors the US style bar b que and free rock concert. Later in the day over on Isla Mujeres, the locals will send off fireworks that are visible all along the coast.

Some of the Hotels have smaller stuff going, the Oasis Hotel Group usually does a party deal with the evening "Burning Man" theme.

The big event though will be at Chichen Itza where the evening laser show will cap off the days festivities including an Alamo reenactment and a visit by President Vincente Fox. The day includes crafts from around the world, food stands and a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Every year the Chichen event has grown thanks to the sponsorship of Frito Lay and Budweiser.

Dangers, you also forgot to mention that the mariachis on Av. Yaxchilan take off their traditional dress and wear Uncle Sam costumes for a day. ;)

It really is amazing, all the little American flags they line along Kukulkan Blvd in the Hotel district and the beach bar-b-ques and cheerleader baton contests. You would hardly know its Mexico. ;-)

This is of course after the big Canada Day celebrations. The giant maple leafs and mooses, (meese?) and beavers come down and the red, white and blue goes up. ;)
