The year is winding down. The days are getting chilly and evidence of the holiday season has begun to pop up around the city. Plaza de la Madre near the baseball stadium already has a crèche scene set up, replete with a stable and animals, and Christmas trees can be found across plazas and in businesses. From Dec. 1st through the 12th, an evening pilgrimage may be found departing from the church in the Old Port around 5 p.m. or so – making its way to the Señora de Guadalupe church in preparation for December 12th, Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe (Mexico’s patron saint). The traditional holiday posadas (from Dec. 16th – 24th) are not far behind and we’re just about ready to ring in the New Year!
Holiday music begins this evening, so quick….let’s Rundown the Weekend! Before we begin our rundown, be sure to watch for detours as you come into town as roadwork is underway on Blvd. Juarez near the intersection with No Reelección (we’ve opted for the road near Coffee Point and down about two blocks before circling around – good luck!)
