Sal's nephew Coco was getting married. Coco and Lupita have been living in the U.S., but they came back to Mexico for their wedding, and everyone at the campground was invited! The church was in a town about 20 minutes from here, and we arrived there just before 2:00pm. It was a Catholic ceremony and that's the longest time I've spent in a church in quite a while!

The first band.
There were two different bands! the first band was really good, and their music was more geared towards the "older" generation. There were 14 guys in this band, and they played for about two and a half hours with no sheet music. We really enjoyed these guys, they were called Mariachi Monumental de Sahuayo. The second band that came on around 8:30pm was more for the younger crowd, and they were too LOUD for us. But by the numbers up on the dance floor, the under 30's were really enjoying it.

The second band playing.
We figure that including a lot of children, there were between 300 to 400 people at the reception. We had a great time, but we all left shortly after 9:00pm because the music was simply too loud for us. But I'm sure the younger crowd partied for quite a bit later than that!
We're not going to the church part of today's wedding, just the fiesta afterwards.
