Chapala's St Francis of Assisi Parade

Above is my friend Stacey. She invited me to Chapala for dinner and then to watch the parade.  We walked around the restaurant area and listened to the mariachis before eating.

Above is the bell ringer. He is waiting for the parade to come back to the church.  Then he rang the bells for a very long time. It was exciting to hear the bells and then the rockets went off. Music, bells, rockets, yelling. Lots of fun.
Check out his head gear. There is another photo just below this so you can see it better. It is a real bird. Maybe a Crow?
The statue of St. Francis of Assisi. I was told that once a year they take it out of the church and parade it down the street and back.
