The Chicago Pilsen neighborhood is a vibrant center of Latino and particularly Mexican American culture in the American Midwest. This image is from one of its festivals, celebrating a popular intersect with broader American culture - the car. In the foreground, a sense of humor emerges with a child's pedal car.
