This festival is tied to a belief that Virgen del Carmen protects the houses and defeats demons that try to climb the rooftops. It is celebrated on July 15-18. Celebrations include dancing and singing with masks for three days. It is a lighter and more relaxed version of a religious festival, so you are allowed to drink alcohol and party a little bit louder
