Mesilla Mariachi

On the Sunday of our New Mexico visit we had lunch at La Posta in old Mesilla. It's a charming old section of town. After our lunch we could hear music, so we followed the sound to the town square. They were having a mariachi band competition and there was also several forms of native dance. The children caught and held my attention. They were such great little performers and danced with zeal. What follows are my favorite photos of them. Which one is your favorite?

The girls swirled and twirled, making the most of their skirts.

All too soon the dance was over. Adiós amigos!

Great photos! I think I like that second one best—the smile on her face and the swirl of her skirt—terrific. Although I am against eye shadow on young girls in principle. smile

What beautiful photos!  We were in Mesilla in 2009 for the Cinqo de Mayo festivities.  Lovely, chilled place.  We liked it very much.
