In some missionary locations Carnival has a lot of history. In the city of Iguazu, for example, more than 70 years of the traditional popular festival are celebrated. In the city of the Falls, carnivals date back to 1948 . Year in which the typical costume dances were already performed.
Already in its first editions Carnival was held in the courtyard of the Iguazú National Park. Then it happened to be held in Faro Barro and Rancho Grande. In the early 1980s the Corsicans officially appeared, with parades of comparsas as we know them today.
The Missionary Carnival is a popular holiday that includes all the people who have 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 the missionary, we see its customs, its culture. Carnivals show us a little about what we are, both to us and to those who visit us . It is a very important contribution that seeks to extend the tourist's stay and provide a more enriching experience,” he said.
