Monos de Calenda

The calendas (religious processions) leave from their respective churches on holidays and march to the Zócalo, or main plaza, accompanied by a syncopated brass band made up of parishioners. Children participate in the calendas, marching and singing songs or on floats depicting religious scenes, most often the Nativity. Monos (puppets) are clothed bamboo frames with paper maché heads and appear in all sizes and shapes. Carried on the shoulders of teenagers, these large figures dance and twirl to the brass band as the calenda marches around the plaza.
