Bucerias Fiesta Schedule of Events

fleet closerGetting the 9 days of events organized actually takes more effort than you would realize – or maybe not, if you’ve tried to organize something in Mexico! It entails not just getting the participants lined up, but also who is going to pay for them – the different churches and colonias, and this year there’s the new administration at all levels, trying out new ideas.
