The traditional “Grito” could not be absent and after many “Viva Mexico”, the fiesta continued with the colorful, joyful, vibrant folkloric dances performed by the so called“Grupo Achai” (Brother in yaqui language), whose members, from the State of Sonora, Mexico, presented their talent with the steps of different regions of the country: Veracruz, Jalisco, Chihuahua, Yucatan, Guerrero and Veracruz. During their show, an impressive projection of the tourist attractions of the country was an unbeatable choreography for the presentation”.
