Thursday September 13th featured the 7th Annual Mini-Feria at the Family Support Center in Llanos del Pinal! It was a marvelous day full of music, dancing, a haunted house, games, and huge amounts of food.

Family Support Center staff, Pop Wuj staff, students, and volunteers, and the participants' mothers all contributed to make it a wonderful day for the children.  Every year the participants' mother prepare "fair food" including elotes locos (crazy corn on the cob).  The children played games, won prizes, and gobbled up the brightly colored cotton candy.
