Jorge’s parents have been going to the same Catholic church around the corner from their house for years.
This past week, the church celebrated its 25th anniversary, and they spent the whole week partying! I only went to 1 night of celebrations (but I hear there were lots of rockets, dancing and food involved throughout the week), and I got to see the ladies dress in beautiful Yucatecan ternos while they showed traditional regional dances.
(Please forgive the blurriness of the photos! It was nighttime and there was lots of movement.)
There was a taco stand (run by my suegro), a marquesita stand, a live band, a conga line, a dance circle and some salsa music. These church-going folks sure know how to party!
