Better late than never, the saying goes. In Guatemala, every October 1st, the Día del niño, Children’s Day, is observed. There were some Children activities and celebrations on October 1st, but the main celebrations were held in Parque Central on October 2.
The Plaza Mayor was full of parents and children taking advantage of the clowns, mimes, chorus concerts and music at the different stages. It was a joyful afternoon for all the youngsters and adults who refuse to let their inner child grow up.
