There are neighborhood fiestas here as well as city-wide fiestas, state-wide fiestas, and national fiestas. Yesterday was the last day of the big neighborhood fiesta of the year here. My neighborhood is called colonia san antonio. Saint Anthony walks the streets here and is a big personality. This was his time, and it lasted all last week. All last week.
Every morning all week I awoke to aerial bombs at 6:00 a.m. Traditionally, when a Mexican town was having a fiesta, they would blow up bombs made out of gunpowder to let the neighboring towns know there was a fiesta that day. That tradition is carried on with these aerial bombs even though we have telephones now.
Every night I was able to lie in my bed and listen to a Mexican band play until 11:00 p.m. Then get up when they finished, go out on the patio, and watch the fireworks until midnight. Before I went to sleep. San Antonio Plaza is only a half block up the street from where I live.
Last night--Sunday night--was the last night. So it was that I went over there and made a video of the fireworks for you.
Anyway, it is good thing that fiesta has concluded because another one starts tomorrow.
