Last Saturday night, once again, “Un Mensaje al Cielo” or “A Message To The Sky” event released over 1,000 hot air balloons or paper lanterns from the Real Palacio de los Capitanes located on Central Park at 7pm. Over 3,000 people got together to celebrate the XXXVII Anniversary of the Declaration of Antigua Guatemala as Patrimony of Humanity by the UNESCO. Needless to say, this event was an event with lots of photographic potential. The sound track for the event was performed by the Canto Bohemio group. The chilly night was the perfect backdrop for the balloons as they made their way into the sky. Kudos to Comision Sociocultural – Conservacion y Desarrollo de La Antigua Guatemala for all their hard work at making Antigua Guatemala a top destination with so many free cultural events.
