Congrats to our Mexican friends celbrating Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolucion) today. It is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori. It is on the third Monday in November, near the official day on November 20.

So what are the bookmakers saying, in particular with the new travel restriction to curb none-essential travel between the USA and Mexico. Will there be a as announced by the organizer or another cancellation as many other events having pushing it out.
