Ignacio Allende’s BirthdayJanuary 22, 2019
Scenes of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.February 5, 2019
Although his baptismal record shows that he was born on January 25, the citizens of San Miguel de Allende celebrated the birthday of their local hero Ignacio Allende on Sunday, January 21st with music, indigenous dances, a big parade, speeches by dignitaries and finally a really fantastic fireworks display. Now I have seen many big fireworks displays dating from the 4th of July celebrations in Riverside Park in Buffalo and in various places in the US and abroad but I have to say that the fireworks display in San Miguel was really spectacular and I hope that you enjoy the photos. My Airbnb has a very nice patio from which I can see the Parroquia (the big church) over which the fireworks show was conducted and from which the attached photos were taken. What do you think?
