2012 Hay Festival Riohacha

The opening parade of Hay Festival 2012 took place in a bright sunny afternoon. Performers from the Jayeechi theatre company invited spectators to join in the literary event, open to people of all ages.

Fantasy, colourful costumes representing the different peoples of La Guajira and dancing to infectious beats took the streets of downtown Riohacha. The parade went across Carrera 7a, going west on Calle 1a and ending at José Prudencio Padilla Park, where Ana María Aponte, Festival’s Director of Communications, Martha Benavides and Julián González from Cerrejón and Weildler Guerra from Banco de La República welcomed all to the Festival.
