[highlight]Leia em Português[/highlight]Aguascalientes, already subject of a post here, is well-known in Mexico for hosting the largest folk and cultural event in the country, the San Marcos Fair (Feria de San Marcos). During three weeks between April and May, the city goes through a makeover to welcome over 7 million visitors, in existing or specially-built places for the event which has been taking place for more than 180 years. There is everything in the programme: animals’ fair, amusement park, parade with carnival float, performances and parties all night long. However, according to local residents, a perfect day at Feria de San Marcos would be watching the bullfight, going for a walk on the streets near Plaza de Toros, eating at a restaurant and eventually going to a dance club. Phew! Long live Aguascalientes!
Take NoteWhen: next edition will be from April 19th to May 11th 2014. Where: Aguascalientes Safety: like any other crowded place, avoid taking your purse – especially at the clubs. Further information: the agenda with all activities is gradually put on the event´s website. The tickets for the shows and bullfights are the first ones to be sold out, stay tuned!
