On September 16, 1810, a priest named Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla residing in the Mexican city of Dolores rang the parish bell calling the Mexican people to rise against the Spanish and fight for independence. Known now as “el Grito,” meaning “the Cry,” it’s one of the most iconic moments in Mexican history, celebrated every year, and you can experience a Grito ceremony Friday night at Miller Outdoor Theatre, along with a performance from America's first all-female mariachi band, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles. Since forming in 1994, the ensemble has found success in the male-dominated world of mariachi, all while collecting accolades and performing for celebrities like Tom Cruise, Oprah and the Obamas.
