Celebrating Graduation with Water and Tequila

While walking around Oaxaca City one day, we encountered a marching band playing loud festive music. It was a huge group of students. Then they began to march, tequilas in hand. These students from Universidad Autónoma "Benito Juárez" de Oaxaca were celebrating their graduation. And tradition calls for the graduating class to march through the city. Their loud ruckus brought people out of their homes. At the end, the students arrive at their campus, and bring in a huge water truck and begin a wet mayhem. 

It was a lot of fun. They shared their tequila.
