Festival de la Cruz (Festival of the Cross) 2009
Callejon de Chepito
Saturday was all about the neighbors coming together and welcoming each other into their homes for some good home cooked meals of posole, menudo, tamales and other typical Mexican dishes. The party went on all night, and continued into the morning culminating with a fireworks show that started at 5AM and went on for an entire hour!
Sunday’s activities included a foot race, a raffle, a greased pole with prizes at the very top for those brave enough to climb it, music, a parade through the center of town, and more fireworks. Here are some images of the parade staging area on Callejon de Chepito and Cuesta de San Jose.
