Don Deigo de Vargas





Today was the re-enactment of when Don Deigo de Vargas rode into Santa Fe to reclaim the city from the Pueblo Indians on behalf of the king of Spain. It is part of the week long Fiesta celebration here in Santa Fe.

It's never boring there! :)

What a cool re-enactment! That beats the goofy Civil War thing they do here... possibly the teeniest skirmish ever, not really worthy of review, but done every year.

It's interesting that the Don Vargas fiesta about taking Santa Fe back from the Pueblo indians, follows on the heels of a celebration taken from the Yaquii indians. Santa Fe is an equal opportunity fiesta city!
