Mexican Festivities

There is a festival/celebration/holiday/fiesta/parade or some other kind of excitement happening in San Miguel de Allende almost every weekend, and often during the middle of the week.

And they are fun to watch and even participate in, if one is so inclined.

I’m never certain what the celebrations are all about, many honor heroes, revolutions, the birthday of a saint, or acknowledgment of a meaningful event from long ago. And all are accompanied with fireworks and firecrackers.

I’m sharing some pictures taken the past few weeks along parade routes, in neighborhood gathering places, church yards and in the Jardin square in front of the Parroquia in central SMA.

One Ex-Pat believes every Mexican has at LEAST 10 costumes to fit most occasions. Not having been invited to inspect a Mexican’s closets I can’t vouch for that belief, but, it certainly appears to be the case.

Enjoy a few of the marvelous characters I’ve encountered.

This group I found dancing and gyrating wildly in a local park with loud live music providing inspiration. Most appeared to be scaring bad spirits away, but who knows for certain?
