La Feria de Santiago

Feria in Río Lagartos

La Feria de Santiago, the patron-saint festival of Río Lagartos, is held in July. A bullfight (really bullplay) ring is erected in the middle of town, and every afternoon anyone who wishes is able to enter it and play matador with a young bull. The animal is not killed or even injured, just made a little angry at times.
