Carnival in Cusco

This past Thursday, Cusco celebrated ´´Las Comadres,´´ a special day dedicated to celebrating women and friends. People celebrate with dances, typical food, and the famous chicha drink. They also celebrate by spraying shaving cream all across Cusco and by soaking everyone in sight with buckets of water.

Most of the festivities occur in the city´s Main Square, markets, and a few other areas. Carlos Moscoso, Mayor of Cusco, also attended the festivities on Thursday.

Cusco´s Municipal Company of Festivities initiated a contest that judged how participants´ costumes, message, and overall aura reflected the culture of the event.

Percy Galdo Bellota declares that Cusco has seen many amazing works throughout the festivities of Carnival and boasts how the event gives value to Peruvian culture.
