This festival honors Mexico’s patron saint with music, dancing and performances including mariachi bands, folklorico dancers, and Yaqui Deer Dancers. Piñatas filled with treats are hoisted hourly for the kids while vendors offer regional food, southwestern fare and souvenirs. The event is FREE and open to the public.
At 9:00 a.m. in the Mission in the Sun, Father Joseph Saba, celebrating the reopening of the mission after two years of extensive renovation, will say a mass. Space is limited as the mission only holds a small amount of visitors.
