The high tourist season takes shape, after the Feast of the Cross, which is still being celebrated in some neighborhoods and also by some families. Not only do the streets of Cuzco fill ever more with visitors from all over the world, but a month of constant noise and movement takes over in the build up to the Day of Cuzco and Inti Raymi at the end of June.
Yesterday, on a sunny morning, the little kids from the city’s kindergartens claimed the main plaza. They paraded and danced. This show begins a month of parades, processions, and dancing through the streets. The children did not do just any dances, they performed different traditional dances from Cuzco, showing the ongoing importance of these dances for us and our identity. The endless lines of children in colorful costumes were awesome.
Cuzco Eats shares with you some photos of yesterday show.
