The Feast of Fools

The literal translation is the "party of the crazies," which describes this festival equally well. This is actually the festival of San Antonio de Padua, which takes place at this location every year in the middle of June. Revelers attend in ostentatious and garish costumes that recall traditional dress and modern cartoon characters. The exact origins of this festival are lost in the mists of time, but locals recall a time when the local farmers and gardeners would venerate the saint at this time for a good growing season and harvest. Their celebrations came to include creative dances and dress, and the festival has only grown since then.
