The event from what I can tell was the centennial anniversay on September 27, 1921 recognizing the(1821) declaration of Mexican Independence when Revolutionary forces occupied Mexico City as the Spanish withdrew. The photo was taken in McAllen, Texas and is now in the possession of the Museum of South Texas History.

Holding the American flag is A.E. Chavez, the first clerk of Hidalgo County and one of the armed men who helped move the county seat from Hidalgo to Edinburg by ox-cart.
