"Dia De Los Locos" / Day Of The Crazy
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
5-Day Photography Workshop
By David Coleman Photography
Experience "Dia De Los Locos" festival in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with accomplished Mexican street photographer David Coleman. David was born and raised in Mexico and is an expert with the Mexican people, customs, language, and world renowned Mexican culinary cuisine.
This wild and woolly festival is pure San Miguel. It happens no place else in Mexico in this form. Though the flamboyant procession rocks through town to the beat of amped-up music, and the costumes and masks of politicians, actors, cartoon characters and monsters would seem to be totally secular, this complex festival has deep religious roots. As they shimmy, shake and stamp their feet aboard their truckbed floats and throw fistfuls of candy at the crowds like Mardi Gras revelers, the participants are actually taking part in a rather profound religious celebration.
Experience a day trip to Guanajuato and explore Jardin Union, Municipal Market (Mercado Hidalgo) and see the stunning Mummies "Momias de Guanajuato".
“San Miguel De Allende is a photographer’s paradise. David knows the secret spots to photograph and culinary hotspots that rival the restaurants of Europe. First and formost safety in San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato was never a concern of mine shooting into the late evening hours. I certanly felt safer than walking the streets of San Francisco."
