Families were able to enjoy a pleasant evening and that is one of the staples of the Horse Fair at Texcoco, the biggest in the region..
It is now faster to get to the fair using the toll highway
By taking the recently opened stretch of the Circuito Exterior Mexiquense which leads from the town of Jorobas to Texcoco, and offers the option of joining said highway at Chimapa-Lecheria, Vialidad Mexiquense and Autopista Mexico-Queretaro, users are finding their transit times to the fair greatly decreasing.
The Horse fair takes place yearly from April 8th to May 1st. Entrance and public order are well managed. There are many activities to choose from. Here are a few:
El Coliseo (The coliseum)
No holds barred fighting
Teatro del Pueblo (Municipal Theater)
