Virgin of Guadalupe Festival Part II

Some more pictures of the event:

Outside the church, vendors sold their wares. Huaraches and serapes, crosses, statues,


 and ...

Lightsabers! 

I still haven't figured out what light-sabers have to do with the Guadalupe story...
But it would make a really interesting story!

The stage was decorated with balloons and streamers.


People built floats for a parade, depicting scenes from the Guadalupe story.
They put them together literally overnight.




















Some gentlemen arrived for the parade with their horses!


It isn't a real parade without horses.


(We also didn't really have a permit for horses, but the police holding back the traffic didn't say anything...)

I would have liked to walk with the parade, and see how the neighbors have decorated their houses, but I was busy selling candles.
