Mother’s Day, unsurprisingly, is one of the biggest celebrations of the year in Ajijic, Mexico.
Easily 1,000 people show up to the Mother’s Day event in the town’s lienzo charro for a fun-filled, family afternoon that includes moms wrestling heifers, competing in drinking games and dancing on a pole.
Cash and other prizes are given out, so the competition between moms during the heifer wrestling is real: the object is for a team to restrain the animal long enough to take off a bandanna that’s wrapped around its head.
