Don´t Hang Up Your Hat Yet—the Fiesta Continues

Corredores llegan con Fuego Simbólico

El tradicionalista Patricio Espinosa representa a un insurrecto

By Jesús Aguado

Thousands of people showed their Mexican pride during San Miguel de Allende’s Independence celebrations, wearing traditional clothing, singing traditional songs, and shouting, “Viva México!”

Locals and visitors packed up the esplanade of the Jardín Principal on the September 15 holiday, as well as the streets nearby, impatiently waiting for the shouts of “long live México,” but also for the most Mexican music and lyrics of the year, which were accompanied that night by more than 10 minutes of fireworks plus two fireworks castillo displays.

The next day, the celebrations continued with the remembrance of September 16, 1810, when the insurrectionist army peacefully took the village of San Miguel el Grande (now de Allende) from the Spanish.

The celebrations this year included civic ceremonies and a parade involving emergency corps personnel, members from civil associations, and students.

If you feel like the celebrations are over, just wait: you’ll need some sunscreen and a hat, because the biggest fiesta in town is just around the corner.

Our patron, St Michael the Archangel, will be celebrated on September 27, 28, and 29.
