The Guardian published a great article this weekend about festivals in Bolivia. They all sounds awesome but they missed one… El Gran Poder Festival in Bolivia’s capital La Paz
El Gran Poder means ‘the all powerful’ and during the festival a figure of Christ with dark features is paraded through the streets of La Paz accompanied by groups of dancers in themed costumes. The consumption of beer and food are integral parts of the celebration! Hundreds of people form the procession and even more line the roads to watch, making this one huge street party.
