Santa María Fair in Honor of the Black Christ

Anyone who goes to Valle de Bravo has to visit the Church of Santa María Ahuacatlán, which houses the Black Christ figure. At the fair in its honor, tradition holds that the caretakers perform a novena and carry out a special celebration with giant, papier-mâché figures called mojigangas, mass pilgrimages, fireworks displays, and artisanal firework structures called toritos.
