Our lady of Guadalupe

The celebration kicks off on the first day of December with a pilgrimage led through the island, by a variety of religious and non-religious organizations, to the Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
On December 9, groups embark on another pilgrimage to the parish and celebrate a thanks giving mass. The festivities continue with a race around the island on December 11, with adults, youths and children joyfully participating. The race begins at the Guadalupe Parish, crossing through the island to return to the Parish in time for a festival full of delicious regional foods, folkloric dances and musical performances. The celebration includes the traditional mariachi bands singing to the Virgin, Patroness of Mexico and Empress of America, throughout the day.
On December 12 several masses are held in the Parish and celebrations with regional foods, dance and music continue until the performances of the apparitions of the Virgin of Guadalupe on the Tepeyac cliff are held.
