For the second consecutive year in a row there will be no Carnaval celebration in Zihuatanejo. Bummer for some, including many of our visitors who look forward to the parades and events. Relief for us downtown residents who suffer enough from drunks and the alcohol culture.

Zihuatanejo no tendrá Carnaval por segundo año consecutivo

Who makes those types of decisions such as whether to have or not have celebrations, Rob?

¡Hola Susan! As the article says, the Presidente Interino del Patronato seems to blame the organizers though he doesn't mention who they are, but I believe it's the city government who is ultimately responsible for overseeing the organization of this event each year since they brought it back from extinction 15 or so years ago. I would think the people responsible for what passes for local "culture" including the clown at the zócalo on the weekends are the same folks ultimately responsible for the Carnaval's organization, but one never knows in the land of No Pasa Nada. This is out of Homero's hands.

But hark! The article says we'll get a consolation celebration sometime in April called "Mis Vacaciones con Sabor". I'm going to guess food is involved.

Heard the rumor. Don't know it to be true. People here love to spread gossip.

I have neither seen nor heard anything resembling proof or even evidence that the rumor is true. So until I do it's just an unsubstantiated rumor. I do know it is both election year and likely to be an Año de Hidalgo, which means that all kinds of funds for all kinds of events and projects will mysteriously disappear. With all due respect, since I don't believe I know you you'll have to excuse me if I am unable to put faith in your allegations. Saludos.
