Ajijic all set to fire up November fiestas

The townspeople of Ajijic are ready to set aside daily routines for the town’s annual salute to patron saint San Andrés Apostol.

The boisterous festivities get underway Monday, November 21, rolling on with unbridled zest to the end of the month.

The fiestas patronales revolve around a full agenda of traditional religious and secular activities centered at the San Andrés parish church and the village plaza. The celebration is punctuated at all hours by blasting fireworks, pealing church bells and vibrant music.

The celebration begins late Monday afternoon with a traditional procession of carros alegóricos (scenic floats) that will circulate around the town, starting from the rear entrance of the church on Calle Galeana around 5 p.m. Different village neighborhoods and church organizations craft the mobile scenery and stand in as characters depicting biblical or sacred themes.
