City of Culture

Magdalena Contreras is one of the township of the Mexico City who have “urban towns” each town have a solid organization; composed by the neighbors, they elect their celebration commission who will organize the main event: the patronal feast. During this great party, people attend religious mass and the trail with the saint on the streets of the town, later they invite the neighbors to a communal dinner where traditional dishes are prepared and some alcohol is given. At night, people attend small concert where bands in most cases “cumbia/salsa or ranchera” plays for the people. In this case i present photos of the San Francisco party, we see the trail and a very partícular actor in every celebration: the “chinelo”.
