Although they say this one has nothing to do with Halloween, it happens on the last weekend of the month which falls on the 24th this year. And what a devilish time it is.
There are two times a year this festival is celebrated in Santa Teresa in Carazo dept., the end of January and today. Though it might be a bit rainy today, there is still a lot of fun to be had. So much so, in fact, that fiesta groups come from all over the region to participate.
Managua goes crazy for the start and finish of the great Santo Domingo festival, one of the largest parades the city sees all year! The truly faithful make their pilgrimage but expect to see all kinds of other characters that will be marching in the street.
While this day is celebrated in various towns, we will be going to the heart of cowboy country – Juigalpa, Chontales – to see a rodeo. If you have ever been to a rodeo you know how exciting it can be. Add to that the craziness of a local Nica fiesta and it will make this one a rodeo to remember!
