Launching Antigua Guatemala As A City Brand

Flowers and Fountain by Rudy Girón

This is not the first time I shared with you a photograph of fountain adorned with flowers. As a matter of fact, this is quite a regular vista around La Antigua Guatemala.

Right now is especially necessary to be near a refreshing fountain since we’re experiencing unusually hot weather conditions. Yesterday, the thermometer reached the 30C/86F degrees mark in the shade and today looks like it is going to be the same. Come on, this sort of thing should not happen at over 1,500 meters/5,000 feet over the sea level. 🙁

Follow the white rabbit to look at other photographs of fountains with flowers.

Antigua Guatemala as a City BrandAntigua Guatemala as a City Brand Aside: Today La Antigua will be presented as a City Brand at 5 p.m. with an event full of activities in front of Palacio de los Capitanes at Central Park. Also, there will be a 15-minute photographic presentation with nearly 250 photos from AntiguaDailyPhoto.com projected over a giant screen hanging from Palacio de los Capitanes as part of the event. Everyone is invited!

Come back tomorrow to see the slide show here and other photos taken at the activities. If I get a chance I will try to make a time-lapse video of the event. Stay tune!

    As a ‘City Brand’, eh ? I’m a bit nervous, Rudy. “Branding itself” seems like something a cheap tourist destination in Florida or California would do…does La Antigua really need to spend any more time and effort to promote itself ? Looking forward to the upcoming slide show, and very curious to see what this means (if anything) for the city.

    • @Eric, to be honest, I am really sure where they are going with this branding stuff, but you can be sure I will keep you guys informed as soon I as learn.
