The Grito de Dolores: enter link description here
In the early hours of September 16th, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a priest in the small town of Dolores, Guanajuato, rang the church bell to gather the townspeople.

We are having our party here in Melbourne , starting in one hour.
I hope that I am not boring you with this , but I am so excited

a community group which I can help and speak with . A great day with
terrific fun loving people " Viva México " .

This is Federation square with probably the most ugly building in
the world , but a great place for a Fiesta.
