Gabriel Peralta, 8, celebrates having won a game against other children in his neighborhood by being the first to catch a pig that has been covered in animal grease and oil. Gabriel’s prize is the pig itself, which he takes home. The game occurred in Barrio de la Asunción, a neighborhood in Mexico City, as a celebration of one of the neighborhood’s patron saints, Virgen del Rosario, known in English as Our Lady of the Rosary. This celebration takes place every Oct. 7. Similar events are common throughout the city’s neighborhoods.
