VIVA MEXICO: The Fiestas
by George Ancona

Regional celebrations take various forms. Music, dance, fireworks, bullfights, parades, rodeos, contests, the birdmen, folk plays, historic battles are recreated with costumes and masks. Each town and region proclaims their own Saint’s Days which are celebrated with reenactments of events. Some are somber, others comical and wild, but all are very Mexican.
