Every year in the charming colonial city of San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico’s colonial highlands region, thousands of people arrive to celebrate the birthday of Saint Michael Archangel, its patron saint.
The feast day is Sept. 29. But the biggest celebrations take place the following weekend. There are parades, music and dancing, fireworks, and more. International Living Editor Jason Holland was recently in San Miguel for this fiesta, known as La Alborada and captured all the action.
