Well, at least the secular portion of the festival begins tonight, October 9 and runs through October 12, the actual Dia del Pilar. Typical events (food, drinks, dancing, music) are set for the plaza in the center of Todos Santos. Unfortunately, the road construction in the center of town is still in full swing so even though Calle Juarez is mostly open to car traffic (many of the previous parking spaces have been eliminated during this “remodeling” of Todos Santos) there will be limited parking in the center of town. The empty lot next to the Hotel California is used by the carnival midway so no parking there either.
If you are lucky enough to find nearby parking, be careful on your walk to the plaza as the construction has left many walking hazards that might be difficult to see at night. A Colorado man recently suffered a terrible fall while walking around town and he later died in a hospital in the US.
