Festivals in Colombia take hints after its European and native history. Many blend Spanish and regional activities to make their festivals specifically Colombian. The Black and White Festival brings indigenous rituals, Spanish cuisine and a water fight. The Colombian youth go wild during the Barranquilla Festival that lasts four days. Drinking and dancing is nonstop for the 96 hour event. Colombians are also deeply religious and celebrate their Spanish/Catholic roots with the Easter Processions. If you like to dance, the World Salsa Festival happens in Cali–the capital of salsa dancing. Colombia has a storied tradition and array of festivals all can find revelry in.
