Ajijic lets down its hair

Colorful floats seen rolling through Ajijic during the Tuesday, February 26 Carnaval included the one carrying a merry band of dancing harlequins.

Miguel Angel Marquez Gutierrez and Alfredo Torres Romero were awarded 3,000 pesos for the best representation of the traditional Sayaca couple based on their handmade masks, typical outfits and outlandish dancing during the Fat Tuesday parade.
