August Festivals

El Salvador's patron saint festivals, which run from August 1 through August 6, have commenced. See La Prensa's photo gallery of images from the opening parade in San Salvador here. La Prensa has another nice photo gallery of images of the famous Monument to the Divine Savior of the World at this link.

Well worth reading again are the two guest posts by our friend Carlos about "La Bajada," the culminating religious celebration of the festival week. You can find what Carlos wrote here and here.
