Meet Gemma Garcia Garcia, our newly crowned, Queen of Yelapa. Last night’s Mexican Independence festivities lasted until the wee hours, with the entire community present. It began with a few dozen male and female basketball games and then moved into the contest. Thrown in for the half-time show was Tepo, doing a boogie and a bit of break-dancing. Then the five young, beautiful contestants for queen, strutted their stuff in a few different outfits and answered questions. Next, our Cultural Center performed a play about animal conservation. It involved more than fifty kids and was a project of the many volunteers visiting this summer, from all over the world. Huge animals were made with found items and recycled trash. Finally, around 1am, after sitting on a rock for six hours, and dreaming of my bed.. Gemma, a sweet little 12yr. old was named Queen, After the honors of the flag … the human powered bull was run through the crowd with fireworks attached for danger and fun. All over México celebrations similar celebrations took place but surely few like ours. Here’s a report of a fiesta that topped ours….The adventure began when a client asked to see a firework function before he bought it… Viva México!!!
