See you on Friday for Los Aguizotes

Awesome!

We are going to have a great time Friday night. So, a couple of things…

First of all, here is where we will meet up at 5pm on Friday:

In front of the Convento San Francisco. Look for the 15-passenger van.

What to bring

Comfortable closed-toed shoes would be advised, as well as a comfortable, casual clothing. If you really want to fit in, come dressed up! Anything in black and with horns will do fine. Fake blood scores bonus points.

Bring your camera but avoid anything flashy. This festival is not known for being high risk for petty theft but, as with any large gathering of people, you will need to keep tabs on your stuff.

See you on Friday!
