Guatemala celebrates its Independence on September 15 and through the entire month student marching bands and parades are quite common. Students begin practicing for these parades as early as July.
By the way, I found this video with Guatemala’s National Anthem as sound track and over view of the country in moving images. If you would like to read the lyrics, follow the white rabbit to Libre al viento tu hermosa bandera found in the archives.
