Sumpango Kite Festival

 

 

The November group of students of Academia Colonial had the opportunity to watch and enjoy the Sumpango Kite Festival 2010. A traditional festivity celebrated on November 1st every year on what is called "the day of the dead" (Día de los muertos). It was a fun and cultural experience in Sumpango, the kites had very interesting messages written on them, some about learning experiences of life others about the after life. It was amazing to see how much work it takes to finish the kites and to look at them fly.

Students also had a tour to the cemetery and saw how family members get together and honor their loved ones with flowers, food and decoration.
