Virgin of Candelaria Feast - Red

The Feast in honor of Virgin of Candelaria (Virgen de la Candelaria), patron of the city of Puno, is made in the first fortnight of February each year, and represents the largest and most important cultural event, musical and dancing by Peru, and one of the three most significant in South America. In this feast the "Diablada" is one of the most popular dances. These pictures were taken in the Contest Dance inside Torres Belon Stadium and the grand parade in the streets of Puno city - February 2010.
