They put up three different banners at Tobolandia and all have been stolen so spread the word! This benefits many lakeside charities.

Los Voladores de Papantla from Veracruz (the flying revolving indigenous group from Veracruz) will be preforming daily during this charity fund-raiser. They will appear on Friday, February 10th at 1:20pm, twice on Saturday, February 11th, at 11:30 and 1:15 and once on Sunday, February 12th at 1-pm. Here is a youtube link to their performance:
The voladores, or" flyers", dress in brilliantly colored traditional costumes, climb up a 150 foot pole, tie their ankles to ropes wound around the pole and them jump off, "flying" gracefully around and around as the ropes unwind until they reach the ground. As the voladores "fly", another performer balances at the top of the pole and plays haunting tunes on his wooden flute.
The world famous Anasticio Jacinto Group, are Totonac Indians and the voladores rite is a traditional act of worship. An ancient spiritual offering in the form of a spectacular dance.
This is just part of the non-stop live entertainment at this year's chili cook-off in Ajijic.
