If you prefer to sit in the stands to watch some (or all) of the parade, bring cash and get there early. The best seats fill up early, and they’re not always free. That said, plenty of people drape themselves over statues to get a free (and high) vantage point.
Try New Things
From barbecue stands along the parade route to fried dough to luscious cemita sandwiches in local markets, try some new culinary treats when in Puebla. The city is known as the home of mole poblano and chiles en nogada.
Don’t keep your eyes only on the parade route. Puebla is filled with incredible food and architectural highlights, so put the map down and take a stroll. It's a great addendum to your Mexican history lesson.
