A crowd watches fireworks at the Fiesta Patronal de Santiago, which took place this month in Mexico City. This type of fireworks display, with its wooden frame, is known locally as a “castillo,” for its large, almost “castle”-like height. The Fiesta Patronal de Santiago honors James, one of Jesus’ 12 disciples, who in Spanish is known as Santiago el Mayor. Activities during the four-day festival included lectures, concerts and workshops.
