“Cuenca’s Independence from Spain” Celebrations Traditional Dance and Ecuadorian Music

There are a lot of festivities going on in Cuenca right now until next week. Cuencanos have been celebrating their independence from Spain with festivals, carnivals, traditional dance and food, fireworks and all kinds of creative arts. We’ve gone to many of these festivities and had a great time. This week and next week we’ll be posting some of the festivities that have been going on around Cuenca.

The biggest festivals are going on in the center of the city downtown in El Centro Parque. On November 3, they had some wonderful dancers performing some traditional dances and an Ecuadorian live band. The dancing ended off with a grand finale of fireworks. Enjoy the video!
