La Noche de los Rabanos, reprise 2012

Here are a few shots from the 2012 La Noche de los Rabanos.  There are three major categories, radishes, dried flowers, and corn husks.  Oh yes, the mandatory 'fuegos artificiales' or fireworks.  Sorry there's no sound, sort of dull that way.

First a dried flower figure
Doña Rosa
Don Quixote
Lucha Libre
Frida Kahlo
El dios de los muertos
Fantasy figures
A new idea for your next year's tree

They work on the corn husk figures year round and add to things year by year making the results quite elaborate and spectacular.

La Catedral en el año 1887 (note the detail in the statues below)


The full scale stone version is so much better for fireworks
Nice that there was a moon out
