Merida Events: Mother’s Day in Mexico

This Week… starting May 07, 2012

Municipal Fiestas This WeekPanaba Fiesta 2012

Yucatan Living Panaba Fiesta: May 10 – May 20

This event is in honor of San Isidro Labrador. A trip to Panaba is probably a good idea about now. This municipality is just inland from San Felipe and Rio Lagartos. It also just this side of Tizimin, which means it is, quite literally, in the gateway to horse country – with the best beaches (and seafood) nearby. Some of the land on the larger ranches is now for sale, so – if country living by the beach is in your future, this event will give you a great idea of what life is like in Panaba.

This art auction will include 30 works by a variety of European artists, with many of the paintings reproductions of quite famous masterpieces. Yucatan’s Paralympic team includes twelve athletes that will participate in weight-lifting, javelin and shot put. The athletes each need a special chair in order to compete and the children need a new vehicle to help them move from place to place. The paintings offered at auction will begin at $3,000 pesos and there will be a catalog of the paintings included with each invitation. There will also be a cocktail party for those who have invitations and catalogs on the evening of the auction. This is such a worthy cause and there is not much time left to meet this need before the June National Paralympic competition. Please attend this event and help in whatever way you can. Hard work deserves reward and these twelve athletes have earned their place in these games, as well as our support.
