El Encierro del Burro
Photographer: Héctor Adolfo Quintanar Pérez
Exhibit Title: El Encierro del Burro
Location: Veracruz, Mexico
With more than 100 years old, the inhabitants of Alvarado celebrate the traditional "Encierro del burro", a holiday that was born after the locals made fun of the ladies of high society who walked in fine horses through the town in a arrogant attitude and altanera. As a result, men began riding donkeys and dressing in women's clothes to adopt a tradition that has lasted more than a century. Nowadays various troupes take to the streets accompanied by modern music and in most cases, the participants dance rehearsed choreographies. This year you could see different types of costumes and participants of all ages. The parade lasted about two hours and towards the end, all the troupes dissolve to become a massive party in the streets and homes
