Samara Preps for Fiestas at the end of the year
Famous bull "Chirriche" will be at the rodeo on Saturday, the 30th

By Arianna McKinney

Samara's Progressive Association is gearing up for this year's town fiestas, to be held from Wednesday, December 28th through Sunday, January 1st. The lineup and venue for this year's fiestas is similar to last year's, according to Freddy Mendoza Elizondo, President of the commission for the fiestas, with inexpensive admissions so the public can have fun participating in the activities.

The majority of the activities will be located in and around the bull-riding ring that will again be erected on the property located in the entrance of Samara across from Super San Rafael, including mechanical rides and food stands. Parking will also be available there.

On Tuesda 27th, there will be a pageant to select the fiesta's queen and a dance will be held in the community hall at 8 p.m. The traditional parade of horse riders will take place in the center of Samara on Sunday starting at 11 a.m.

Bull riding will begin around 6 p.m. each night. On Wednesday, Los Coloniales will mount bulls from the hacienda of Mario Urbina of Garza. On Thursday, the crowd will enjoy bull-riding presented by Los Chalaneros from Sardinal, and on Friday bull riders Los Selectos will try their luck with bulls from Las Juntas de Abangares. On Saturday, the famous bull El Chirriche will awe the audience along with other bulls from Hacienda El Bosque of Hugo Jimenez, and Sunday the fiestas will wrap up with Los Cachorros and a lineup of bulls from La Hacienda de Macho Carballo.

Half of the funds raised by the fiestas will be dedicated to the high school in El Torito of Samara in order to construct classrooms and finish closing in part of the high school with chain-link fence, according to Leda Maria Espinoza Matarrita, vocal for the Progressive Association and president of the high school's administrative board. The remaining half of the money collected will be reserved for other community projects, such as building a wall behind Samara's school to prevent water draining into the schoolyard.
