Music, Arts, Foods and Products from Oaxaca are offered and displayed in Park Hidalgo from the 15th of February until the 3rd of March. At this expo, there are several stands with hand-made children’s toys, several hand-made clothing stands, an ice cream stand (flavors worth making the trip for by themselves), a food vendor with inexpensive anjojitos, a couple of stands with traditional Oaxacan food stuffs, including Chapulins (you have to ask since they’re behind the counter), and, of course, a few chachka stands.
