Religious Guatemalans hold vibrant celebrations in honour of Virgin Mary. Festivities feature colourful processions accompanied with firework displays, traditional Mayan performances—particularly pole flyer dancing, fairs selling souvenirs and local crafts, tons of local entertainment including ferris wheels, gun galleries, and much more. One of the most vivid celebrations takes place in Guatemala City as the Virgin Mary is the patroness of the capital, but celebrations in Sololá, Joybaj and Quiché are also famous owing​ to their great traditional Mayan pole flyer renditions. In general, the country is much more vibrant during thes days. The feast of Mary fal​ls between August 13th and 15th.
