The jarana or La Vaqueria

This year there were groups of folkloric dancers from many different towns dancing the jarana in the plaza on Monday night.
Usually just one group performs, but this was how it used to be: everyone in their finery coming into town to dance.
This was the Friday before; a different band played on each corner of the plaza and the people danced. It was mostly Tejano music.
