The Sparks are Flying in Puerto Escondido

They sure do know how to throw a party here…

Here are a few snaps of a neighborhood’s recent celebration of their Virgen.

Mexico has no fear of fireworks, you can get as close as you want, and in some cases you may not have a choice in the matter.  Men mount scaffoldings for fireworks on their heads and charge around simulating bull fights, while the audience delights in the festive spray of sparkles.  The food is mouth-watering, the rides are scary, and the ambiance is fun-filled.  What is better than streets packed with families out enjoying the night?
