This weekend marks the official opening of the Feria de Cedral and the Feria de Santa Cruz.  This year’s festivities include musical guests “Los Tucanes de Tijuana” as well as classic rock by “El Tri.” The Ferias de Cedral and Santa Cruz date all the way back to 1848,  and ever since then, people from the all over the Yucatán come to the town of  Cedral every year to join the festivities that include regional handicraft exhibitions, horse races, bull fights, rooster fights, gastronomy, and many cultural events.  The festivities start on the 25th of April and will end on the 5th of May with the traditional dance,  “La Cabeza de Cochino. ”  Several years ago, Cozumel municipal officials applied to UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization ) to secure the Feria de El Cedral and the Feria de Santa Cruz de Saban as historic cultural events.
