Fiesta en Playa Alta (Biblián, Ecuador) - Julio 2010 [05:36]
Esta fiesta dedicado al Sr. De Los Milagros se realizo en la Playa Alta - Cantón Biblián, Ecuador en Julio 2010. La celebración es una que es común en Latino America. Disfruten. Annual celebration (fiesta) in honor of Jesus Christ (local name given - Sr. De Los Milagros) in a small Andean community south of the country near Cuenca (Playa Alta - Cantón Biblián). The fiesta takes places over the weekend and draws locals surrounding this community. The celebration includes games such as indoor football (modified soccer), volley ball, raffles, and folklore dance competition. This celebration, I believe, has roots in the harvest. The chapel that is privately owned puts on this fiesta to raise funds for its maintenance. The video plays tribute to the man that started the local celebration in the region - Manuel Jesus Minchala (RIP). After his death, the torch was passed to one of his sons - Luis A. Minchala. His grandfather passed on to him the Holy Cross - Sr. De Los Milagros. Mystery remains as to why it skipped a generation. Hope you enjoy the clip and insight into the local celebration.
