  3. Festival Of St. James


Credited with bringing Catholicism to Mexico, St. James the Apostle is described through legends as a magical man who rides a white horse. The parades and festivities held in Cabo reflect the wonder still felt by the people for this patron saint of Spain. Look for riders mounted on white horses in the parades and re-enacted battlefield skirmishes staged at the town square around dusk. The parades begin in the afternoon and are followed by closed shops and street parties swelling from the cantinas.
