Traditional San Santiago and Santa Ana Festivities
During the fourth week of July comes the colorful fair and attendant celebrations. Stands offering regional handicrafts, including traditional medicine with herbs from the Huasteca region and traditional clothing, are set up in the square. Then, rides fill the street leading up to the church and its atrium, overflowing onto part of the plaza. You can fill up at regional food stands hawking thin slices of beef known as cecina which is usually accompanied by Huastecan enchiladas, zacahuil (several feet of cornmeal dough and meat steamed in a banana-leaf wrapping), stuffed corn patties called bocoles, and pemole cookies made with toasted and ground corn.
