The Venetian Carnival has arrived to Antigua Guatemala

The Venetian Carnival has arrived to Antigua Rudy A. Girón

In recent years there have been a Venetian style carnival celebration as part of a fund-raiser. I am not sure they had the fund-raiser this year, but the Venetian style costumes and masks were seen through out Antigua Guatemala. These fancy dresses and masks, of course, are far, far away from the traditional Guatemalan carnival celebrations; brought by foreigners living in Antigua Guatemala and worn mostly by foreigners as well.

For some reason, I believe, Guatemalans have not caught up with these fancy dresses yet. Why do you think that is?
