Flores, Guatemala – The Dance of the Dolls

travel adventures after 50

We have been privileged to experience some pretty cool local festivals including New Year’s in Quito, and Fashing in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and we stumbled into another one in Flores in January.


We went for a walk around town and came across a big party which had spilled out onto the street. There were several people randomly setting off fireworks in the middle of the street. A little while later it turned into a parade of people coming down the street with a giant dancing doll that stopped and danced at every street corner. There was a band which included a giant xylophone carried my three people.


People were setting off fireworks everywhere and the parade was followed by a beer truck which appeared to be giving beers to anyone on the street. We had no idea what was going on but everyone was having fun.
