The 5th Annual Todos Santos Mango Festival is this weekend, July 27 – 31, 2012. This is a small festival held in a tiny park on “el otro lado” in the Todos Santos barrio of San Ignacio. There is a little midway setup, a bandstand and food booths. Events include a race, dances, coronation of the queen of the festival and a fishing contest. I don’t know the times of any of the events but something is happening on every weekend night at the park. Of course, schedules are subject to change, so it’s best to check before you go.
They do a terrible job of publicizing this festival so I really don’t know much more about it. I can’t even find any links on the web with current info. Truly amazing!
I can tell you that the weather has gotten hotter, yesterday being perhaps the hottest day of the summer yet. Last night took forever to cool down to 76F, hanging at 85F past midnight. So you can expect to sweat at the Mango Festival.
