The Globos event is this coming Saturday, Sept. 8th. It starts in the late afternoon at the soccer field on Revolucion street. People make balloons out of paper mache and send them off to the skies to burn up.
There is also the Rebozo parade and celebration in the Ajijic Plaza. I don't know yet what day that will be held. All in all, this is an exciting time to be here. Fortunately, my next house sit doesn't start until the eighteenth and I will be in town to to be part of everything.
Also, the International Mariachi festival is going on now in Guadalajara. Huge parade. And this evening I am going to an event in West Ajijic. Hopefully I can get some photos before it is too dark.
