Fiesta de Inocentes, Atuntaqui, Imbabura Province

Between the day after Christmas and New Years Eve, the community of Atuntaqui in the Imbabura Province celebrates the Fiesta de Inocentes. The actual Day of Innocents, December 28th, is a little like April Fool’s Day of the United States. This festival includes a parade on New Year’s Eve and incorporates many of the New Year traditions found throughout Ecuador, like the viudas, men dressed as widows of the Old Year, and the burning of effigies.
