Guayaquil Independence Day, Guayas Province

On October 9, 1820, Guayaquil claimed independence from Spain. Every other year, this is a national holiday in Ecuador (exchanged with the Independence Day of Cuenca in November). But even those years that the holiday isn’t celebrated on a national level, residents of Guayaquil celebrate with a civic parade and a month full of special activities like art exhibitions, film festivals, and more. Expect this celebration to be magnified in 2020 as Guayaquil will celebrate their bicentennial.
