Villa Obregon Candelaria Fiesta

Feb 2nd - CANDELARIA DAY (Candlemas Day)

All of Mexico celebrates with dances, processions, and for those that can afford , a bullfight. So for some reason the bull ring of Villa Obregon has "Candelaria" and nobody knows why unless each community takes on the responsibility to celebrate a different holiday. Celebration is supposed to be through Monday. Yesterday was the first day and nothing started until the evening ... and as far as I know it was music and dancing. Only 30,000 watts of power rather than the normal 70k ... and the bands were very good. We can hear them well from the house. So today around noon they brought in a truck full of bulls and here they are.
I missed this Fiesta mainly because it started so late and it's hard to take pictures under artificial light. I did much better by going to the La Manzanilla Rodeo the same weekend.
