Happy Thanksgiving Day in Los Cabos!
Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México.
During Thanksgiving week in Mexico, November the 20th, is recognized as a National Holiday with the traditional closing of banks and government offices. The date holds a special place in every Mexican’s heart as the beginning of the Mexican Revolution of 1910 in which the poorest of people rose up and took arms against the 34 year reign of corruption and subjugation under the the rule of Dictator/President, Porfirio Diaz; who was in power from 1876 to 1910.
Diaz used his paramilitary army of Rurales, to keep order in the country side, while fixing elections and having all opposition jailed or executed at the hands of his Federales, claiming that Mexico was not ready to rule itself and that only he knew what was best for the country; enforcing his beliefs with a strong and blood-tainted hand. During this time of his presidency, the wealthy stayed rich and got richer while the poor remained as poor as before, if not worse.
Francisco I. Madero, Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata are the three most famous figures associated with Mexican history as the core group of men who went on to launch the ultimate rebellion against Díaz, known as the Mexican Revolution; also poetically referred to as, ”The Wind That Swept Mexico”. The Civil Revolution of Mexico lasted from November 20, 1910 and remained a decade long struggle for equal rights and freedom, ending in 1920. This armed conflict is often categorized as the most important socio-political event in the country of Mexico and one of the greatest upheavals of the 20th century. The end result being, the Mexican Constitution of 1917 at the expense of over one million lives.
And Thanksgiving is also major ordeal in Los Cabos, where many local restaurants offer delicious turkey dinners with all the fixings, most of them priced at between $25 – $40 US dollars per person. Solomon’s Landing Restaurant has traditionally hosted a Thanksgiving Day dinner event as have other restaurants along the marina and in downtown Cabo San Lucas. Thanksgiving is also a time when many visitors prefer to spend the holidays here rather than back home. Many of which make an annual return visit to Cabo every Thanksgiving. Cabo San Lucas also holds an annual 5K Turkey Trot road race in which the Top 3 in every age category receive free turkeys. The 3 mile race begins at Plaza Amelia Wilkes and winds its way up towards the new El Comer shopping center, where the finish line ends at the junior high school located directly behind El Comer.
Pancho’s, is one of the oldest restaurants in the center of Cabo San Lucas, founded in 1989. Decorate on its walls paintings by Pancho Villa and Frida Kahlo. Pancho’s continues to offer its long-standing traditional Mexican favorites, such as its chicken
