THE CARNIVAL OF SANTIAGO DE CUBA

Paragraphes test 1

Every year, during the last week of July, on Revolution Day, Cuba’s national holiday, this Eastern city shines and sparkles with the vibrant colours of the carnival. The Carnival of Santiago de Cuba is the oldest and most famous carnival in Cuba and even in the entire Caribbean.

YEARS OF HISTORY...

This carnival is celebrated in honor of the city’s patron saint, Santiago Apostolo. The festival is usually kicked off by an spectacular fireworks display and a theatrical performance, led by an actor interpreting the role of Apostolo. The carnival’s program is rich and colorful: parades of decorated floats, performers in elaborate costumes, street acts, graceful dancers in their vibrant outfits, music and performances for children.

THOUSANDS OF VISITORS

Participants spend months preparing for this festival, creating the floats and costumes which amaze and hyponotize the spectators coming from all across the island to watch and participate in the event.

Santiago de Cuba is alive with festivities day and night during carnival, with one week of dancing and celebration.
