Mes de la Patria
Our many friends that follow and enjoy our ever popular Rivera Cuale monthly newsletters may remember that last year we wrote about Mes de la Patria and the celebrations that occur in Mexico every September. This year Mexico is getting ready for an extraordinary celebration in honor not only of its 200th anniversary of Independence from Spain, but also the 100th anniversary of its Revolution.
The Mexican people take great pride in their country. And this year, everything designed to commemorate these two great dates is linked to the ideal of renewing Mexico’s identity and historic continuity. We will see spectacular celebrations, not only in Puerto Vallarta, but throughout Mexico. There are very special exhibits planned for the many national museums, as well as tracing the many historical routes that were followed by the various heroes in the fight for Independence and the later Revolution against the ruling class. Click here for more details.
Puerto Vallarta has never been shy when it comes to a party, and this year should be one of the biggest and best celebrations ever. The colorful red, white and green banners, and pictures of the many heroes are already appearing around town. The celebrations are being planned. On the evening of September 15 at 11 p.m. the President of Mexico comes out on the balcony of the Presidential Palace, Los Pinos in Mexico City, and leads ‘El Grito’, the traditional cheer “Viva Mexico, Viva Mexico, Viva Mexico!” It is no different here in Puerto Vallarta. Our Mayor stands on the steps of the Presidencia, our City Hall, and leads the huge crowd in the same uplifting ‘El Grito’. One can’t help but be swept up in the spirit and excitement!
September is also ‘el Mes del Charro’ (the month of the Mexican cowboy), but so much more. Charros and the popular Mexican event ‘Charreada’ are revered national symbols of Mexico. Many colorful events are featured to celebrate the charro, from parades to rodeos with exciting competition events.
