Calvario Xelapan by Luna McCarthy

Saturday, July 23rd was Xelapan’s 30th anniversary. There was a parade replete with dancing, “flag-throwing” girls, a marching band and clowns. A 30 metre cake had been baked and laid out in front of the Municipal Building, with many of the bakers standing behind their work of art. The cake was decorated like a train and covered with photos of all of the Xelapan locations in Xela; the above picture is of the Calvario location. Tons of people turned out to see the parade and to celebrate by taking pictures and eating cake. Happy Birthday Xelapan!!
