Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #23: Celebrations (Enchanting Peru 3)

Peru is home to many colorful festivals. During our traveling there, we hoped to experience some of their cultural celebrations.

The last evening in Cuzco, we decided to take a walk around the downtown area. Minutes later, we saw many young people wearing colorful costumes marching into the city square. It looked very much like they were going to participate in a fun celebration event.

Cuzco City Square

Youngsters were taking selfies:

Fabulous costumes with beautiful colors and textures were everywhere:

along with lots of music and dancing.

These photos and the two videos were taken with iPhone 8+.  I apologize for the image quality.

In the city square, we learned that this was a regular celebration enabling local people to enjoy music, dancing, and fun gathering during the weekend. We all certainly enjoyed it.

People around the world have different ways of celebrating their cultural festivals, religious holy days, etc. Through the celebrations, we share the joy of cultural traditions and learn about the history and culture of the country or region.

I look forward to seeing your family’s celebrations and/or those you’ve experienced while traveling.

Have you seen these:

Scilla’s “What a wonderful world!”

Nicole says, “Many are the happy things in my days, one more colorful or playful than the other,…” Take a look.

Murtagh’s Meadow shares the beautiful trails and mountains of the Ballycroy National Park.

Brian (Bushboy’s World) says, “Happiness is sitting down and watching the world drift past, from the big to the small.”

Be sure to stay tuned for Tina’s challenge next Saturday!

  2. Thank you very much for the mention, Amy! This is a nice post and theme again. 🙂 Must have been enjoyable to watch the people’s dance and fun in Cuzco, the festive atmosphere. Also I love the very first photo, the sense of place there, the dancers taking selfies and the second video… it looks like that dance tells a story, thank you for uploading them for us to watch! 🙂

  34. Truly wonderful post, Amy! I so enjoyed seeing Cuzco and the festivities, in your vibrant and active photos, as well as the two videos. So much color and celebration. I think the woven art of this culture is astounding, and you captured this very well too.


    • Thank you so much, Jet! I’m delighted to know how much you enjoyed the captures of the woven art and the videos. I felt lucky to see the festival on our last day in Cuzco.
