Entertainment[edit]

Juan Aldama's center of entertainment is Minarturs discothèque and the Alameda located at the south side of the main plaza. In the main plaza; families gather to enjoy moments with their families and to listen to groups and bands performing almost every Sunday.

I live in Juan Aldama and the Alameda is NOT anywhere near the plaza, they are two separate things and are not even close to each other. Beware of Wikipedia! Anyone can write anything.

I do not live anywhere near Zacatecas, but I find it funny how something that's not related with the article itself has been here for 3 months.
