CHICAGO (CBS) — The South Chicago neighborhood on Sunday hosted the city’s oldest Mexican Independence Day Parade – but in a whole new way in the interest of safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A COVID-safe caravan took off Sunday afternoon from 86th Street and Commercial Avenue.

Cars, bicycles, and other vehicles sporting Mexican flags did a loop around the neighborhood.

Organizers said the parade was meant to celebrate independence, but hearts also went out to migrant children separated from their parents.
