Oaxaca - Celebrations in the Street

There is always something going on in the streets of Oaxaca at night. One night, while walking at the edge of the zócalo, we ran into what seems to be a common Oaxacan celebration - a moving party, led by a pair of oversized figures with a small band in tow.

The next day, while visiting the Oaxacan cultural museum, we looked out the window and spotted a few guys working on a fireworks display down below. When we got out of the museum, I asked them when they were going to be set off. It turns out that they were for a wedding.

We made a point of coming back for the show. It was quite the impressive display.

Here is a video with some footage of the two events:
