La Fiesta de los Locos

Tradiciones en San Miguel de Allende

05:00 - 08:00

You don’t need to know Spanish to know what loco means – completely crazy – and that’s what this parade celebrating the Festival of Saint Anthony of Padua specializes in. Find a spot on the street to watch groups of locals called Cuadros (like New Orlean’s Mardi Gras Krewes) march past in extravagant handmade costumes.  Some costumes are beautiful, others grotesque, and many simply outrageous. Somehow there’s always one group wearing cowboy boots with pointy tips so long they almost hit the wearer in the chin. It’s a cacophony of bands playing and flatbed trucks broadcasting raucous music while costumed celebrators throw candy to onlookers.
