JennyPV posted this in the forum that I was asking questions about newbie going to PV: Just an FYI as well since nobody's mentioned it yet - you'll be in PV for Mexican Independence Day. You'll want to read up on that so you don't miss it. Takes place over two days, starting with the "grito" around 11pm on the 15th (the traditional "Viva Mexico!" cheer lead by local dignitaries) and continues through the 16th. Parties, bands, I think there's a parade or procession too.
Anyone know of details on how the events are in PV during this celebration? Are there fireworks?
