BTW ... the original article said Tuesday 15 and 22 February

not Tuesday 15 thru 22 February .... so make what you can of that. The whole thing is about 2 weeks long including parades, etc

Are some days better to go than others? How do find out about the best parades and events?
There doesn't appear to be a website with a schedule.

I think those two dates may be the main arena events but I just saw that the official opening day is the 10th

No I have not found a schedule for the two weeks

We were out there mid-day today and they have it aout 1/4 way up...there are about 50 men working on it & it is amazing to watch......no plans, no hard hats, etc. They are also building a permanent, arched entry to the stadium....looks like a Casino also is going up near the divided drive into the site. This is just an amazing thing to see for those not familiar with it - google: La Petatera
We can't find a schedule for this year either! Soon, I hope.
