Todos Santos Real Estate and News [Oct 13, 2010]
What is new in Todos Santos today?
We just finished with the Todos Santos Festival de Pilar (patron Saint), which was happening from October 9 – 12. To see photos of the event go to: http://mamouna.smugmug.com/gallery/14126209_fgysw/3#1041482835_yXUQv
Todos Santos Plaza has just been completed. We now have a beautiful new fountain, gazebo, sidewalks, park benches, trash cans, and lighting to complement the colonial scenery of our town. The governor of Baja California Sur was present for the opening night during the presentation of the 2010 Queen of Todos Santos. Queens from the last 10 years were present to celebrate the new plaza and coronation of the new Queen Magali 2010!
Sunday was all about horses with the Cabalgado. Men and women on horseback rode through town. The priest blessed the horses at the stadium and young girls performed fancy horse tricks for all the spectators. It was beautiful!
Todos Santos has been getting tremendous “good news” press:
