Public events have been suspended due to C-19. Some holidays have featured online competitions and events.
On Saturday, Feb 27 the first preseason baseball game was
scheduled at 1p. Pre-Covid 19, games were on Sundays starting at 1p (with
pregame activities at 12-12:30 sometimes), at the Pescador field in
front of Chedrui, when they were scheduled.
5th: When public events were held, there was an annual ceremony
commemorating the arrival of Francisco Hernandez Cordoba in
1517, who is credited with discovering the Yucatan and what is now
Mexico, after landing on Isla Mujeres. This will presumably be conducted
with a limited number of officials (without inviting the public) or
virtually. The expedition of 110 men and 3
boats sailed from Cuba and and around the coast of the Yucatan
Peninsula, battling with
the Maya, until all but one were injured, and over 50 died. The
uninjured fellow went missing when they visited Florida, and Hernandez
Cordoba died after returning to Cuba.
