Police will be deployed to a village in Mexico after an invitation to a girl's birthday party went viral and 1.2 million people said they would attend.


Crescencio Ibarra made a video to extend a warm invitation to daughter Rubi's 'quinceanera' - traditionally seen as a coming-of-age birthday for girls in Latino countries.

He ends by saying that "hereby everyone is cordially invited".

Memes appeared all over Twitter, some poking fun at the family, but others more kind.

The dad has been left perplexed by the response.

He told a TV station: "We wanted to invite the people from the area, that’s all."

Local authorities are now concerned that thousands of people may actually turn up for the party on Boxing Day.

The Red Cross has been alerted and police will be deployed to roads.
