La Feria.

The fair. A small,old-fashioned fair. We came to Mexico City today to spend some time with the family. And to see some good friends (Lauro and Enid) who lived here more than 16 years ago. They came with their kids (Valerie-19 and Douglas-15 years old) all the way from N.Y.

Right around the corner from where my mother-in-law lives is the church (Catholic). The church's name is Resurrección del Señor- "The Resurection of the Lord". In Mexico, the custom is that a major celebration takes place on the saint day of the church. And this Sunday is the church's main day. So the celebration includes a small fair on the street.

We took all the kids (ages 7 to 20). There were some bump cars, and what a great time the had with something so simple!!

Here are some of the pictures...
