Day 2 Dia De San Pedro

Friday, June 29, 2007

Today was the second day of the fair. After cooking up some snapper and stir fried veggies for dinner Paul and I headed off to check out the action.

We had a decent sized bag of packs of gum left over from our afternoon school party and so we figured it would be a nice treat for the Holy Cross Kids. Once we got there and found one of our gang, it did not take long for the rest to find us and the gum was gone.

My favorite fair game is called - Rita de Premios la Super Sonia (what a mouthful). For $2 you get to pick a rolled up Mexican bingo picture and if your picture matches one of the pictures they have assigned to the prizes, you win that item. They have some kids stuff but the bulk of the prizes are housewares (as you will notice in the picture below) I did not win anything this time around, so far I have won 2 nice baskets with handles on them, a set of 2 glasses, 3 plastic bowls, a smaller sized laundry bucket and a couple of kids posters, I gave one away and will find a home for the second one. Paul always laughs at my excitement in winning housewares there.
