Fiesta del Gran Poder. Between the months of May and June, the whole city of La Paz stops to celebrate one of Bolivia’s most extravagant and unique festivals. Translated as “Festival of the Great Power”, Fiesta del Gran Poder is a religious celebration paying homage to El Señor del Gran Poder or Jesus Christ. The dramatic festival features thousands of dancers parading down the sprawling streets of La Paz, flaunting their colourful costumes while thousands of spectators cheer in delight. Although the Fiesta del Gran Poder has changed over the years, many of the Aymaran traditions remain, making it a one-of-a-kind event enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.
