Ricardo Villarreal, Mayor of San Miguel de Allende, attended the inauguration event of this celebration that has already become a tradition in the city.

“It is very important that we instill in our young generations the cultural values of appraising our natural resources and taking care of the environment in order to work together to save our planet,” declared Ricardo Villareal.

Mayor Villarreal stressed that this is one of the most important fairs throughout the year for San Miguel, as it generates a significant economic spill for the municipality.

In addition to this festivity, several cultural events aimed at protecting the environment will be taking place at “Parque Juárez”, where hundreds of San Miguel residents, as well as national and foreign tourists come to enjoy and be part of  these activities.

The organizing committee expects a great number of visitors for the next days.

The Virgin of Candelaria or Our Lady of Candelaria, popularly called La Morenita, celebrates the Virgin Mary on the island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands (Spain). The center of worship is located in the city of Candelaria in Tenerife. She is depicted as a Black Madonna. The “Royal Basilica Marian Shrine of Our Lady of Candelaria” (Basilica of Candelaria), is considered the main church dedicated to the Virgin Mary in the Canary Islands. She is the patron saint of the Canary Islands. Her feast is celebrated on February 2 (Candlemas) and August 15, the patronal feast of the Canary Islands.
