Missionary Carnival has everything it has to have. Drums, feathers and sequins. In addition, this 2020 comes with added value.
The Missionary Carnival passes its 2020 edition. 17 locations from all over the province participate and contribute to this traditional festival in Misiones, until25 February. The initial kick was given by the City of Apostles. Four comparsas paraded on the corsódromo with all their music, brightness and joy. Then the other municipalities that plan to dye their streets with brilliance will be added. The Provincial Final will be held in the capital of the “Missionary Carnivals”: San Ignacio, on Saturday 22 February.
No one wants to stop being part of this traditional popular holiday . From the inside of the red land, comparsas, scolas and dancers gave the present to dance. The Comparsa Estacao Porá, of Garupá; Bahiana Samba, of Concepción; Pompeii Samba, of San Javier; and Perla Sur, of Apostles. Also present were Imperial, of San Javier; Caprichosos Do Samba, of San Ignacio; and Dulce Tropicana, of San Javier. For the city of Posadas will participate Bateria Disclosure, winner of the 2019 edition.
In some missionary locations, Carnival has a lot of history. In the city of Iguazú, for example, are more than 70 years of the traditional popular party. In the city of the Falls, carnivals date back to the year 1948. Year in which the typical costume balls were held.
Already in its first editions the Carnival took place in the courtyard of the Iguazú National Park. Then it was held in Faro Barro and Rancho Grande. At the beginning of the 80's the Corsicus officially appeared, with parades of comparsas as we know them today.
Missionary Carnival is a popular holiday that includes all the people who carry the rhythm and dance in the blood. But it is also part of the tourist offer of the province. The undersecretary of Promotion and Marketing, Oscar Degiusti, highlighted its tourist value. “Here we see the essence of each place and of the missionary, we see its customs, its culture. Carnivals show us a little of who we are, both to us and to those who visit us. It is a very important contribution that seeks to extend the stay of the tourist and provide a more enriching experience,” he said.
