A fruit offering?

We were driving through Catarina, a town outside of Managua the other day and came across this huge construction across the road.  There was tons of fresh fruit hanging from it and it was nicely decorated.  Apparently the local patron saint was going to be making the rounds for a festival day.  Nicaragua has a heavy Catholic tradition and it seems every town has a specific patron, but this is the first time I have seen something like this.  It was really impressive, but no, we didn’t try to snag a papaya or anything crazy!!!
