June 3-4

The population of Valladolid turns out on the night of June 3 to witness the representation of a rebellion against injustice in 1910 that was the first spark or chispa of the Mexican Revolution.

More than 800 actors take part in La Chispa. Dressed in authentic turn-of-the-century garb, they play the parts of the rebels, the police and soldiers sent to arrest them and the local aristocrats who condemned them.
