Montana Travel Reports for 2006, March 21, 2006, Winter Appreciation Day



March 21st every spring in Nuevo Progreso Mexico is Winter Texan Appreciation day. It is helpful to arrive early in the day, yes, even "can't get her out of bed early" Carol got up and got going.







Street vendors sell everything.

So, here is a enlargement of just one piece.


















Left, strawberries, huge, red, ripe, juicy. Believe they made drinks from these.














Right, wheels for the vendor of nuts and candies.



















Left, having some fun.











Entertainment abounds, there are several stages with folk dancing and musicians, all free.


Winter Texan Appreciation Day is all of this and more, it is quite the experience. Something that we hope to do for a number of years.
