It’s exactly what you’d expect - marimba orquesta playing, lots of people dancing, even more just listening, tons of food carts around. A great way to spend an evening!

It’s a typical charming Mexican square from the afternoon onwards. Locals arrive and hang out, chat, flitter among different groups and the sounds of live marimba music playing in the kiosk.
