Colombian Cultural Festival

This is their type of Independence day. I feel like its kind of like a Mexican Fiesta because its full of dancing, little shows that show some type of culture of their country, bands preforming, little shops set up selling jewelry, food, clothing, etc.  Everyone just dances the day away. The performers get everyone hyped up by their music and you see people just start dancing while waiving their mini Colombia flags. To me its just a way to come to together and celebrate their countries day. Its just like our 4th of July just without all the fireworks.

Colombian Wars

In 1964 the Colombian Conflict began. It is an ongoing low-intensity asymmetric war between the Colombian Government, Paramilitary Groups, Crime syndicates and Left-wing Guerrillas.
