On Saturday, thousands of Latinos came out to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the annual Mexican Independence Day Parade in East Los Angeles, and there was one person in particular we were very excited to see repping Mexican pride.

Disney's princess Elena of Avalor made a very special appearance and was named the honorary title of "La Madrina (Godmother)" of the parade.

Needless to say, people were damn thrilled about this awesome title, especially during Hispanic Heritage Month. 

"This just happened at the #MexicanIndependence Parade in East LA and I'm just so happy!" Aileen, ‏@Amazing_Aye, tweeted after seeing Elena walk by.

The festivities were held in the heart of East Los Angeles and the 2-mile parade went through the historic Cesar Chavez Avenue.

Elena of Avalor's dress was spectacular and resembled a quinceañera dress.

Disney premiered "Elena of Avalor," the anticipated animated show featuring the very first Latina princess, in mid-July

Speaking about the new role and as the voice of Elena, Dominican-American actress Aimee Carrero said: "People have been waiting, not only for Elena, but a woman of color in a power position, being a leader, and it's really just an honor to be a part of it."

Although Disney has never defined Elena's background, this Mexican Independence Day Parade, we're claiming her as Chicana!
