After the annual fair ends on August 15, a few days later there is another celebration which is blend of religious and local traditions. It is Catholic and Mayan in its origins but I could never seem to get a good grasp of it’s full significance. But picture this: non-stop music coming from multiple bands in the same plaza, bombas blasting, a circular parade of men wearing wooden structures loaded with fireworks.

Here is a slideshow followed by three video clips of this awesome day. Enjoy!
