Our Lady of Carmen Festival in Yohualichan
On July 15 and 16, hundreds of people—including the faithful, dancers, and groups of voladores (flying men)—come together to honor Our Lady of Carmen. They make offerings of cash, liquor, and live chickens or turkeys to feed those in attendance. The evening of the 15th, there’s a procession that precedes the festivities of the 16th, when the image of the Virgin is taken on a tour of the entire town and flying men rituals are performed all day. These are mixed in with other dances and the day concludes with a fireworks display.
