2009 Harvest fair
Jaltepec, Jocotepec, Jalisco - Mexico
 

Here on the north shore of Lake Chapala in Mexico, we have many fiestas throughout the year. But if you are nostalgic for a country fair in the Fall, there is only one here: the annual ACÁ Harvest Fair. The 2009 Harvest Fair is Saturday October 17 and Sunday October 18 from noon to 6:00 p.m..

From their website - Great Greens - 2009 Harvest Fair

We went on Sunday even though there was a chance of getting rained out from the edge of Hurricane Rick.   Turned out to be the perfect day with more wind than usual but nice and cool.   The lake was covered with white-caps.

First time I'd been there and have been wanting to check it out.  Not a small operation at all.  I spent the first hour or two meeting all the people that Marilyn knows because I know almost nobody in the area.  Lots of environmental displays; solar, composting, recycling and Amigos del Lago (a save the lake Chapala group).  A number of local crafts people were selling wares like the sandals girl below.   We spend the last hour or so listening to a very good female Mariachi group - Mariachi Feminal
