Celebration Time

Last night my neighbourhood has a traditional celebration for the Virgin de Guadalupe, ahead of the 12th December when Mexicans from all over the country make a pilgramage to the Basilica de Guadalupe.

They like fireworks here, and they like ’em dangerous! Check out the guy with the gunpoweder loaded ‘Bull Hat’ on at the end of my video. Before that they light a firework laden wooden frame castle, and shoot off a few rockets from the roof of the church. As ever, my video is crap, but it gives an idea.
