It’s still the rainy season, but sanmiguelenses seldom let a little rain stop them from doing anything fun or interesting. And really, the rain usually only falls for an hour or two in the afternoon. So come on out, the water’s fine!

This is when the hillsides around San Miguel are at their greenest. I remember driving through the campo with a friend one August day, and I loved his description of the countryside. “It looks like Switzerland…but with cactus,” he said.

August 8 – Feast of Santo Domingo. The founder of the Dominican Order of friars and nuns is especially celebrated at the church of Santo Domingo.

August 22 – Dia del Bombero (Fireman’s Day). Expect a noisy parade through the centro with sirens blaring and crowds cheering.

All-in-all, late summer is a wonderful time to be here, enjoying the August events in San Miguel de Allende.
