Mariachi Festival
By Brenda B. Covert

1     Every September, people crowd into the city of Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. They come to enjoy the Mariachi Festival. The festival is a ten-day-long event! Mariachis from around the world come every year to perform in the festival.
2     Mariachi is a popular style of Mexican music. The musicians - called mariachis - wear large Mexican hats with flashy charro suits. Not only is a charro a suit, it's also the name Mexican cowboys are known by. The charro-wearing mariachis play trumpets, violins, guitars, and folk harps. They sing Spanish songs.
3     In 2004, the festival coordinator said, "Musicians from around the world come to this event to see where it all started, to enjoy the sounds of some of the best mariachi groups around." Would you believe at least one mariachi group comes from Japan? It's true!
