Rainy Mexico's Independence Day in San Miguel de Allende

We at Cristi Fer Art Studio love to support the community of artisans and artists in San Miguel. Last weekend we organized an Art and Crafts Fair. In spite of a rainy weekend lots of visitors stopped by to enjoy the ice cream, unique jewelry, original paintings, fantastic home decor, natural skin products, and honey and lavender products.  The state of Guanajuato, and specifically Dolores Hidalgo, is the place where the movement started. One of the Fair participants, a native of San Miguel, told me that it is a tradition to carry the Torch, from Dolores to San Miguel and Celaya and Guanajuato (the Capital of the State of Guanajuato)
