THE LOCOS PARADE

This San Miguel de Allende event is celebrated in homage to San Pascual Bailón by the gardeners who were characterized with masks, hats and very colorful objects to thank for the good harvests.

Its name as such comes from the fact that there are a number of “crazy” who go out to parade through the streets of San Miguel de Allende without caring what others will say, because in the end no one knows them because of the masks they wear. Every June 13, San Antonio de Pascual is commemorated, so this parade has to take place the first weekend after this celebration and then the hundreds of people who are going to parade begin to gather around 10:00 a.m. on Sunday at the San Antonio Church since, at 11 am this colorful event should begin. The tour takes place through the streets of Zacateros, Hernández Macías, Insurgentes, Aparicio and Núñez, then they go down through San Francisco and the final destination is the Main Square. Throughout the tour, the participants have to do everything possible to capture the attention of the attendees, so they dance, shout, run, bring out their “inner madness”; in addition to that, in a gesture of gratitude, they throw sweets to the spectators for what the the Locos Parade has already been characterized at a national level as one of the most crazy, colorful and fun events.
