End of the Year Celebrations in Antigua Guatemala

Alas Fireworks for End of the Year Celebrations BY RUDY GIRON

In Antigua Guatemala we celebrate the end of the year and welcome the new year with lots of music, dances, plays, and fireworks and firecrackers. Here I share with you the burning of Alas [wings] fireworks and below a popular Torito [little bull] fireworks at Calle del Arco on the last night of 2018.

I wish y’all a new year full of prosperity, health and love.

Below you can also see what the agenda for the day was at Calle del Arco.
