The Feria Yucatan is in full swing at the Xmatkuil fairgrounds, attracting the normal crowds to the rides, concerts and events for which it is famous. There is something happening every day at Xmatkuil, however if you plan to go only once during the event, then make it Friday November 29, which is the day of a truly unique event, the Gran Vaqueria, a traditional colonial hacienda style dance and party which runs from 7pm.
Villages throughout the state are represented, competing with each other for the most spectacular dress, and best jarana dancing.
The Gran Vaqueria takes place at the Teatro del Pueblo, inside the fairgrounds, and to whet your appetite, here are some photos from last year’s event. Thanks to Feria Yucatan 2012 Facebook page for the photos.
