Fiesta San Patricio officially started a few days ago and we went the first day because the kids wanted to go on the rides and we wanted to see what was new. The only thing really new is the carnival equipment is newer, larger and more expensive this year. It even spills into the adjoining street behind OXXO. Fiesta San Patricio lasts about 10-12 days but the carnival rides will be here through Semana Santa.
We parked on the corner of the plaza early and after 3 hours the car was in the middle of a traffic and people jam. Decided to make our escape early before we were totally trapped. We'll go again tomorrow night to see the castillo fireworks between 11 and 12. Thursdays usually have less people and we'll park by the highway to avoid traffic.
