Pinal Villa's yearly fiesta

Pinal Villa on the outskirts of Melaque has a yearly Peregrinacion or Pilgrimage party.   Families and organizations from neighboring communities organize the dancing and parade to the Church in Pinal Villa.   Fireworks follow the parade, dogs run and hide and children smile.   The last night, Monday the 7th of October, there will be a castillo or tower of fireworks.

The Peregrinacion, which is the interesting part, starts from the community of the group at about 6PM to arrive here at 7. General activities are from 5AM to 7PM+. Jaluco was here last night.
