Vergin of Candelaria Feast @ The Point Puno

from January 23rd to February 15th

“Peru‘s most important religious celebration and one of the largest in South America (just behind the Rio’s Carnaval), which means lots of beer and lots of Catholicism. Celebrated every February by Aymara, Quechua, and mestizo ethnic groups of the Peruvian altiplano, the Fiesta de la Candelaria in Puno is a festival over the first two weeks in February in honor of the Virgin Maria of the Candelaria.

With neighborhood and village dance groups (conjuntos) winding through the streets of Puno for hours on end fueled by local pride and alcohol, keeping your camera handy is advisable. The first weekend´s competition is reserved for the traditional dances of the native communities (danzas autóctonas), while the following week is reserved for the more stylized dance groups (trajes de luces, literally suits of light)”.

This Friday June 18 is shaping up to be one of the best Friday June 18s this year!

A huge party is planned at The Point Hostels Lima to celebrate not only two of our favourite workers’ birthdays – Rick and Lizeth – but also the return of the mischievous chef Andrea Tacchino and her knight in shining armour Steve Fearns.

Steve robbed The Point of Andrea last year and whisked her off to England, where were hoping he would make of her a good woman. By all reports, that hasn’t happened.

A costume party is planned (more on that as the big night nears) with cheap drinks already on the chill and cheap thrills a certainty.

So put on your dancing shoes and get to The Point Hostels Lima. We promise it will be a night full of regrets.
