Fiesta del Gran Poder

In English "gran poder" means "great power"—the name of the festival makes reference to Jesus Christ, to whom the merriments are actually devoted. The fiesta is considered the largest religious celebration in Bolivia, and the main highlight is mass dancing competitions for the Señor del Gran Poder, that is for the Lord of Great Power, Jesus Christ. The dancing groups try to outdo the other troupes and please the Lord. The annual event is held in La Paz either in late May or early June.
