Mérida celebrates the anniversary of its founding as a city in an atmosphere of merriment and color, celebration and tradition.
It begins with a massive serenade on January 5th, when hundreds of troubadour folk singers sing the traditional alborada at dawn to wake the city with couplets and verses of Yucatecan trova music.
Festivities last for 24 days, during which there are a range of activities including dance, theater, literature, visual arts, music, and children’s events.
