The celebration of Candelaria begins this weekend with Parque Juarez filled with flower vendors from all over Mexico. Early this morning many were still setting up. But more than a few took a long break to enjoy the zumba class taking place in what is normally the basketball court. For this two week celebration the area becomes a stage surrounded by the “maceta” or flower pot vendors.
Zumba is very popular in Mexico. Over 100 people, young and old, male and female, Mexican & gringo were up and dancing at this 8:00am Sunday morning class.
