A pair of boots + a piece of wood = a whole lotta fun. And not a corporate logo in sight. America the beautiful.

In Mexico this is called "Zapatear" and the wooden platform they're dancing on is called a "Tarima" very popular in the state of Michoacán. Its nice how they're keeping their traditions alive here.

6:37 Every once in a while, people should dance so hard that they untie their shoes! It seems like its good medicine!!!

This is my new go to place when I'm feeling sad. My mother, from Enniskillen, used to do this at night in the fireplace. Now I can show this to people and they will finally BELIEVE me!

Bored stiff and peering through the youtube rabbit hole, I ended up here and I tell ya what, best video I've watched in awhile that was really enjoyable to see so many having such a great time! Loved all the flatfooters dancing, too hard to choose just won, I'd give 'em all trophies and ribbons!
One question though, why did some of 'em have on wet pants? I noticed on some of 'em, their pants from the calf down were wet.
