Celebration in the Plaza - Aguascalientes

Back when Paul was on his mission, the building pictured below was the Hotel Francia and Paul would eat here some times with his companions.  The Francia hotel is now the tall pink building in the background.  The older building on the corner now houses Sanborn's department store with its restaurant on the second floor.  We went there to eat. 

We heard music and drums and went to the balcony windows to look down on a parade making its way to the central plaza to the "Catedral Basilica de Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion."

This pillar in Aguascalientes plaza marks the geographical center of Mexico.

In 1968, they celebrated at the plaza in Aguascalientes as well.
