Parties-deeply rooted in the Avilanian traditions-are taking place throughout all the municipalities of Ciego de Ávila to end the cultural chore of the territory during 2009.

Florencia, a municipality located northwest of the province, was the first to start the festivities with a day dedicated to the celebration of the 51 anniversary of the liberation of the town by the Rebel Army on December 14, 1958.

Joshua Abrahantes Carballo, director of the House of Culture in that municipality, expressed that the local parties include artistic galas, dances originated in the area and rural music, as well as other activities for children and plastic arts exhibitions.

In Ciro Redondo, another municipality, the parties started with Afro-Caribbean dances, drum bands and the typical foods and drinks akin to the traditions preserved in the different settlements of the area.

Heriberto Rosabal, deputy director of Culture in the province, said December will also welcome the El Yeso and La Salina sprees in the coastal town of Punta Alegre, and the match of the Red and Blue groups in Majagua.

Rosabal also said that the University Carnival, theater performances and several plastic arts exhibitions in the capital city will add to the activities of the Culture Week in the rest of the municipalities.

For the final days of the year there will be dance and music on the streets with the performance of local companies and the Provincial Concert Band, as well as children choirs.
