  Mexican Independence Day - September 15th-16th
Independence in Mexico
Mexican Independence Day celebrates the events and people that eventually resulted in independence from Spain, the country that had control over the territory of New Spain, as it was also known then. Fueled by three centuries of oppression and sparked by a call (Grito de Dolores) to revolt in 1810 by the respected Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo, the first call to arms was made in the village of Dolores, in the state of Guanajuato. The uprising pitted the poor indigenous indians and mixed mestizo groups against the priviledged classes of Spanish descent, and pushed them into a violent and bloody battle for freedom from Spain.

Lake Chapala, Mexico's largest fresh water lake, is known worldwide for its mild weather, scenic charm and incredible sunsets. It is a popular vacation getaway for citizens of Mexico and one of Mexico's largest ex-pat retirement locations. Lake towns such as Ajijic, Chapala and Jocotepec are only 25 miles south of Guadalajara so it is a natural weekend or vacation spot for the inhabitants of Mexico's second largest city. Mainly located in the state of Jalisco but also extending into Michoacan, the lake is approximately 50 miles long by 10 miles wide. More on Lake Chapala...
