An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day first of October, repeating indefinitely
Cacería del Zorro, Ibarra, Imbabura Province
The Cacería del Zorro is a horse race that takes place every year in early October. The winner from last year’s race dons the infamous fox tail that fellow race participants must steal before the finish line to take the new title. Several categories from youth to professional take place throughout the day. The morning of the race begins with a parade in town; race participants then make their way on a traditional track that includes some challenging opportunities for rider and horse before arriving at the race track on the shores of Yaguarcocha. Many local clubs sell tickets that include a celebratory event later in the evening.
