A Parade of Parades–Los Locos

Fun reigns each June when people of the communities and neighborhoods in and around San Miguel de Allende celebrate in the streets with the unique Los Lobos parade, maybe the granddaddy of all local parades.

The history and traditions about this event is worth the read at http://www.atencionsanmiguel.org/2016/06/17/los-locos-parade-and-story/.

Spectators line the parade route streets, and participants don (usually) handmade costumes in themes selected by each area.

It is a day of dancing, singing, and joyful fun celebrating the farm workers, with a large taste of craziness. I’ll share more pictures of various adaptations of themes so you too can have a few minutes of SMA excitement and enjoyment.

Los Locos, parade, San Miguel de Allende, crazy, that little voice
