Coastside residents, many with ties to the Mexican state, celebrated in the street and at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Church, the sponsor of the event. Santiago Apóstol, or St. James, was one of Jesus’ 12 apostles and the patron saint of a municipality in Oaxaca. The saint has been honored with festivities in Oaxaca, Spain and Puerto Rico for more than 500 years — and, for the past two decades, in Half Moon Bay.
