Christmas Light Up in Cotacachi

On Saturday evening in the central park, there was a live concert with several Ecuadorian singers backed up by the Cotacachi Municipal Band.  Afterwards, about an hour long sh directed at the many children in attendance.  The park was packed with people, with many vendors selling all kinds of stuff – LED lit balloons seemed to be the favourite for the kids.

After all the music and celebrations, the mayor of Cotacachi came on the stage and gave a speech, then a countdown.  The park lit up all at once with some very beautiful decorations.  I observed all the hullabaloo from my rooftop patio.  After everything was lit up, I wandered down to get some better photos. It was quite the spectacle.
