Burros and Beyond

Everyone, meet Reina, queen of all piñatas.

Carrying loads of sweets and treats on her back, waiting patiently to be knocked over by over-excited children, Reina symbolizes the perfect amalgamation of tradition and festivity.

Prepare yourself to be part of this delightful journey, where we unravel the enchanting fusion of Mexico’s lively fauna shaped into colorful, candy-filled piñatas.

So, buckle up festivity seekers, and let's dive right into what promises to be a roller coaster ride full of colors, fun, culture, and of course, candy!
