Las Férias de Mexico

Once every year, certain areas in México have a féria, or fair. I recently had the chance to visit the beautiful city of Ciudad Guzman, Jalisco, Mexico, I was able to see the fiestas they hold in the city square and their féria.

 

During these events, they have an array of things to do, from food and toy vendors, to fireworks that last all day, and danzas. These special events only last one month and are open from 5 a.m. to 2 a.m., and then move to a new city. This event is so popular in Mexico that many of the people who arrive are from different cities and the entire event is aired on television.

 

The most popular days are on the last weekend of the event. This is when they move Senor San Jose from the church and take him to the governor’s house. On these days, the city square is so tightly packed that people can hardly move; however, it is definitely worth it. Overall, these events in México are absolutely beautiful.
