Most towns in Michoacan have their own specialty; copper. ceramic, straw products, textiles, guitars and violins, leather and more that I am forgetting. On Saturday there is big, long and noisy parade with each district showing off their particular specialty. I didn't photograph the parade this year. We were more interested in studying the crafts.
My daughter, Cynthia and I had a long weekend in Uruapan, where the big market is held along with the Casa de Cultura that houses all the prize winners. It was amazing.
