Fiesta La Manzanilla starts on Wed night

Posted by Rennie on February 3, 2009, 9:05 pm

Dancing in the streets is serious stuff - flip-flops need not apply ... wear your lace-ups or walking sandals!!

Wednesday night, the Fiesta begins with dancing which follows the Banda & the Farola in the jardin and in the streets to the Casino and back. Come to the jardin after 8 PM and stand by for punch, music, and dancing 'til you drop, ... or 11 PM, whichever comes first.

Gringo Day, Thursday, Feb 5, is sponsored by the international community to pay tribute to our Mexican hosts. We will serve Birria beginning sometime after 1 PM (means closer to 2 PM)at the Casino. We do our best to serve our Mexican friends first so be patient. Are you willing to be a volunteer server?? Let me know.

The band from Wed night will play all afternoon then will lead the crowd down to the Plaza de Toros at about 4 PM for rodeo activities and much more dancing until sunset. Be sure to keep your ticket handy so you can enter the Rodeo grounds fee free.

Later in the night, around 9 PM, and after the Farola in the jardin has advertised the Friday activities, there will be a large, high powered dance/show band playing in the Casino until the wee small hours. There is an additional charge for this dance.

It's a fun time... if you still haven't bought your tix, they can be had for $180 pesos at Palapa Joe's, Cafe Risa, Manos Ayudandos bookstore.
