Grand Solmar Timeshare says visitors can experience local history during Grito de Dolores and Mexican Independence Day celebrations.
The month of September also brings a time for celebration for the people of Cabo San Lucas and throughout Mexico. On Sept. 15 they will be the “El Grito” celebration and on Sept. 16 begins the celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day. Visitors here can enjoy the festivities and celebrate these historic events with the locals.
The Cry of Dolores, or Grito de Dolores, marks the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. On Sept. 16, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Roman Catholic priest, gathered his congregation and encouraged them to revolt against Spain. The “grito” is this call for freedom, says Grand Solmar Timeshare.
Hidalgo y Costilla’s “cry of independence” is now emblematic of Mexican independence. In fact, though historians do not agree on the exact wording of his original speech, it is tradition for the president of Mexico give his own shout of patriotism – or Grito Mexicano – based upon the “Grito de Dolores.” This same scene plays out in cities across Mexico, including Cabo San Lucas. Local political leaders begin the ceremony with the ringing of bells followed up by a speech that includes the names of the important heroes of the Mexican War of Independence. The speeches usually finish with a threefold shout of “¡Viva México!” followed by ringing bells and the waving of the Flag of Mexico. Grand Solmar Timeshare says celebrants can also take part in a mass singing of the Himno Nacional Mexicano, the national anthem.
