For the Virtue of the Family – A parade in Arequipa. Arequipa is an old Inka city with Spanish influence. It is called the white city because it is built with Sillar, a whitish volcanic rock local to the area.

Families, schools, universities, whole neighbourhoods, parade and celebrate in this yearly event that last all day.
