Valladolid, Yucatán — The “Noches de la Heroica Zací” video projections have dimmed at the former convent of San Bernardino of Siena. 

You could say it was an act of God.

During heavy rains last Wednesday, lightning struck and severely damaged one of the three projectors used for the high-tech presentation.

It will cost 20,000 pesos to repair the machinery, according to Diario de Yucatán. The expense will be absorbed by the state tourism and culture bureau CULTUR.

But because parts are difficult to get, officials are unable to say when the show will go on again.

The projection mapping show was inaugurated on Dec. 22 and carried out by the French company Citelum.

Technical difficulties suspended the same show in April and May, and also part of July. Citelum has also been contracted to produce similar shows in Izamal, which have yet to commence.
