Xelapan’s 30th Anniversary

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!!

    Great pictures!  According to the local newspaper, about 10,000 people turned up for your birthday!  😉   And Xelapan´s! 
    They had a marimba playing on the stage and one of the magicians from IRTRA gave quite a show while the cake was being handed out.  It was fun watching people dancing to the marching bands tunes!
