Bernal, located in the municipality of Ezequiel Montes, was once again the epicenter of the celebration for the arrival of the Spring Equinox. After two years of not being held, these celebrations marked by purification rituals and the beginning of a new season energetically speaking, returned.
This type of celebrations had not been held since March 2019 due to health safety issues.
Festivities and rituals in town
Bernal’s main garden was the central point for these rituals; the view of the third largest monolith in the world is privileged from that area, so visitors were able to appreciate the Peña in all its splendor.
After the spring parade, which was led by children and senior citizens of the municipality, the authorities officially kicked off the Bernal Equinox festivities.
Music, dance and families
The festivities were framed by the presence of families and large groups of tourists. Sanitary measures were respected and those in attendance were able to enjoy all the gastronomic and cultural offerings that Bernal had to offer this weekend.
Typical regional dance groups gave color to the main streets of downtown Bernal. Visitors came to receive an energetic bath in order to welcome this new stage of the year in the best possible way.
The celebrations continued with artistic presentations. The singer Verónica Zurita performed in the main garden to delight those present with popular Mexican songs. The same as the trio ‘Pasión Huasteca’, who were in charge of closing the cultural program.
Dances and rituals marked the return of this symbolic festival that reminds us of the cycles of life, as well as the need to cleanse our energy in order to bring in new dawns.
