Parish Festival

Below, another video from the parish festival for the feast of St. Anne that we attended last Friday evening here in Querétaro, México – it is sort of a “survey” of the different elements of that parish bazaar. It had something for every member of the family. In fact, see if you can find the following elements in the video:

  1. The fair-style “boat” ride that swings dangerously close to a big mess of power lines.
  2. The fair-style “boat” ride that swings within inches of the church building.
  3. The greased pole with various “prizes” hanging at the top for those who could make it up there [we watched several guys try, but by the time we left they had only made it about 2/3 of the way up]. The prizes included four-packs of toilet paper.
  4. The fireworks “tower” (yet to be ignited).
  5. A vendor selling frozen strawberries, ice cream, and popcorn.
  6. Guys standing on the roof of the church, standing by to light fireworks and ring bells as needed.

All this and more: fun times celebrating the saints in Mexico!

    Yeah. Those “swinging boat” rides freak me out at parking lot carnivals (which seem slightly safer than here) and at amusement parks (where I assume they are super safe). No way would I have gotten near that one. Yikes! But this video footage is just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
