On October 23, the head of the office of tourism (from Mexico City) will be in Todos Santos along with the governor of Baja California Sur, the mayor of La Paz, our own mayor and up to 20 other dignitaries.
Sometime in the early evening/late afternoon, they will arrive at the plaza. There will be art, crafts and other displays both in the theatre and outside in the plaza. Regional food boothes will be on display as well as a booth showing how local sugar cane is turned into saleable products.
After viewing the various displays, the group will head to the stage and a brief ceremony officially announcing Todos Santos as a “pueblo magico” will commence. Afterwards there will be folkloric dancing and a guest musical performer. There will not be a public dance.
And the construction beat goes on and on….
The work is continuing on the highway. The goal is to have the asphalt all back in place before the Oct. 23 ceremony. Today we learned that the asphalt is not the end of the story. There will be concrete laid on top of the asphalt at a later date. Tubes have been placed under the road to handle current and future electricity and telephone cable needs. The new cables should be put into place in the near future, perhaps before 2007.
