La Ceiba Carnival

And here’s yet another event for you should you be heading to Honduras anytime soon. In the town of La Ceiba around May 28, the people of that fine locale will be holding their annual carnival. The celebration is held to honor Saint Isidro the Farmer, the patron saint of this busy fruit-exporting hub.

This year’s celebration runs from May 22 to 28 and features all manner of elaborate and colorful costumes, song, food, drink, and local color. The key is to be there for the finale, on the 28th, when the party kicks into high gear and the music and dancing in the streets makes this normally sedate town look like the tryouts for the next season of Fame.
