Merida Events: Orchestra and Maná

This Week… starting February 03, 2014

Valladolid Yucatan 2014 Fair

Yucatan Living Valladolid: Candelaria Fiesta: January 24 through February 9
This fiesta is one of the most important fiestas in the state. It is held in honor of Mary, mother of Jesus, to confirm that, for Catholics, Jesus is the Light of the World, and it also marks the time when the chicle workers returned from months of hard work in the forests. And it honors the beekeepers and other farmers. All events focus on the community and the family unit. The fiesta eventually grew so large that it began causing damage to the city itself, so it was moved to a commercial area, Los Gavilanes, which is in the outlying suburbs of Valladolid. Candles are still lit to the Virgin in the annex of the Church of the Candlemas. While no one was paying attention, this sleepy little rodeo town grew into a commercial and industrial giant and, with the elevation of Chichen Itza to the status of One of the Seven New Wonders of the World, Valladolid has become a tourist mecca. Visit Valladolid’s website in Valladolid. For more, visit Valladolid’s wiki page and click on the great links at the bottom.

Yucatan LivingSan Felipe Fiesta: February 05
This fiesta is in honor of San Felipe. San Felipe is between Rio Lagartos and Dzilam de Bravo and is rapidly becoming quite a tourist destination. Any seafood you can think of can be found here and it is a great place to see waterfowl, turtles, and flamingos.

Ongoing Exhibits in Valladolid

Yucatan Living Exhibit: Photos by Francisco Hernandez Until February 20
Francisco Hernandez, a Mexican born U.S. citizen and Director of the Valladolid English Library, graduated with a Master’s Degree in International Development Studies from Iowa State University. Francisco has had the privilege of working for and on behalf of minority and marginalized populations in Mexico, U.S.A., El Salvador, Haiti and Jordan. He enjoys international travel and has visited parts of India, Cambodia, Thailand, and Europe. Francisco believes that life is made of snapshots and that taking pictures is a way to capture not only the image of what he sees, but also the inner emotions the image brought out of him. He loves sharing his pictures with people because he likes sharing the beauty of the image and the emotions he felt when he took the photographs. Finally, his collection of pictures is a reminder of the unique and blessed opportunities he has had by the mere fact of being alive. All photos in this exhibition are for sale.

2 Responses to “Merida Events: Orchestra and Maná”

  1. I was just looking at the schedule for the carnival parades…. and I wonder are they not going down the Passeo and through Centro anymore? Where are the Fair Grounds at Xmatkuil?

  2. No, this is the first year that the majority of the parades for Carnival will be at Xmatkuil. The beginning and ending ceremonies (which are not parades) will be in the Plaza Grande, and the Children’s or Pre-School Parade will be in the centro. Everything else will be at the fairgrounds in Xmatkuil which is south of the city. You should have no trouble finding it on Google Maps…
