I've always loved fairs. The concession stands, the stock shows, the rides....all of it. The San Miguel fair has "all of it" and the citizens turn out in droves. The cost is 10 pesos to park and a 25 peso entry fee. After you are inside, there are a few rides that have an additional cost, some of the entertainment requires an ticket and some of the tickets are a bit expensive. Then of course there are charges for the food but most of it was quite reasonable. We had four tacos pastor for 28 pesos. Last night as we were leaving about 9:30 PM people were pouring through the gates and there was a line of cars lined up all the way back to the round-about. But while we were there, I only saw one or two other gringos.
