It takes place from the second to the seventh of January each year, though from December 28 (day of water and paint the "Calle del Arco Iris") one begins to feel its festive and carnival atmosphere. This party offers a wonderful encounter with the ancient, the typical, the legendary ... ritual, shamanism, everything held dear by the current Narino people (descendants of indigenous Quillacingas), to be shown these days to the visitors. A place to experience another facet of Colombian life.
