Celebrations Guanajuato

Last weekend, in an overnight to the city of Guanajuato, the neighborhood behind our hotel was having their saints day celebration.  Mid-afternoon, a procession which was headed for the church passed by the restaurant we were having lunch at, blasting off loud rockets to a torito dance performance followed by conchero dancers and hundreds of young drummers preceding flowered litters which carried the chalice, Jesus on the cross and the Virgin Mary.

The party afterward had all the usual, specifically loud traditional music which echoed off the surrounding hills until 11pm followed by rockets and a fireworks display.
