Peru’s Cajamarca Carnival Parade to attract over 1 lakh visitors

Published on : Thursday, February 23, 2017

Peru's Cajamarca Carnival Parade to attractPeru expects to welcome 150,000 visitors during the Cajamarca Carnival Parade taking place on Feb 27 along its 4-km route, the event organizer projected.

 

“There will be more than 75,000 people in the infrastructure-covered stretch alone, but we expect around 150,000 along the 4-km route,” carnival organization head Alexander Cespedes told Andina news agency.

 

Thus, the northern region has already prepared a corresponding citizen security plan, he added. Likewise, the event will be patrolled by over 1,000 National Police agents.

 

Cespedes is confident the carnival will see thousands of visitors, since Cajamarca —unlike other Peruvian regions— has not been severely hit by nature (torrential rains, floods or landslides).

 

The event coordinator informed 80% of hotel rooms in the area are already booked, which also anticipates the carnival’s major success.

 

Cespedes also noted the 24 Cajamarca neighborhoods joining this year’s King Momo festivity are gearing up their colorful costumes to be displayed at the parade and troupe contest.

 

The parade will depart from the military school located in Baños del Inca highway.
