San Felipe BC MX, Carnival Parade
Throughout the Catholic world Carnival is a big celebration with the purpose of getting all the craziness out of people's systems so they'll be ready for the solemnity of Lent. Mexico is no exception and Carnival celebrations in Mexico are some of the most exuberant you'll find anywhere.
The small village of San Felipe is located on the north end of the Sea of Cortez within what is known as the Sonoran Desert, a mere 120 miles south of Calexico and Mexicali on the International border between Yuma and San Diego.
It became one of many fishing villages on the Sea of Cortez to attract fisherman from north of the border, and enticing them with an unlimited supply of shark, yellowtail, roosterfish, totuava, Pacific striped marlin, scorpion fish, stingrays, barracuda, and dozens of other species. The Sea of Cortez has been called the Aquarium of the World.
