From the early hours of the morning, hundreds of pilgrims arrived at the church of San Cristobal to celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe.

With cheers, chants and the traditional mañanitas, the pilgrims and parishioners made their faith clear, visiting the Morenita del Tepeyac to give thanks for the benefits they received during the year.

Celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Peto

As in the city of Merida, dozens of parishioners arrived in the municipality of Peto to give thanks to the Morenita as part of their promises.

Mass was celebrated at 11:00 pm on Sunday by the parish vicar Óscar Remigio Montalvo Canul.

At the end of the religious ceremony, the Mariachi Azteca performed the mañanitas and songs by participants such as Yaritza Caamal, Teresa de Jesús Avilés Uribe and the presentation of the folkloric ballet ‘Corona de Luna’ with pre-Hispanic dances.

Devotees of the Virgin of Guadalupe are safeguarded

As part of the celebrations of the Morenita del Tepeyac, a guard post was set up on the Merida-Tizimin federal highway to safeguard the lives of pilgrims.

The checkpoint was installed at kilometer 18 which belongs to the municipality of Mocochá, however, it was reported that the operation was carried out between the coordinated police forces of the municipalities of Motul, Baca, Mocochá, Kantunil and Cacalchén, reporting a white balance at the time of going to press.

Another checkpoint was set up near the junction of Motul with Telchac Pueblo, where the Municipal Police of Cacalchén participated.

Vaquería for the Virgin of Guadalupe

Meanwhile, in the municipality of Chocholá there was a true patron saint celebration, as the celebrations of the Virgin began with a vaquería to open the way for the traditional mañanitas.

The vaquería was in charge of a group of jaraneros, who showed their talent for dancing jarana yucateca.

The event was attended by children, youth and seniors who were present and enthusiastic about dancing the jarana yucateca.

Prior to the vaquería, there were dozens of antorchistas who spent the night on the first floor of the Chocholá Municipal Palace.

It is worth mentioning that the celebrations in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe continue, due to the fact that there are dozens of antorchistas still returning to the state, so motorists are advised to take precautions, especially on the highways in the interior of the state.
