Managua Toro Guaco
Every town and city in Nicaragua has a patron saint. The Toro Guaco festival celebrates and honours the patron saints of each town. Toro Guaco festivals take place throughout the year in different cities across Nicaragua. The most popular and colourful Toro Guaco Festival takes place in Managua. Managuans dress up in 1500s fashion and many pose as characters from Spanish folklore. Visitors to Managua during the Toro Guaco festival will be treated to scenes of mock battles, vibrant dancing, colourful fireworks and a spectacular parade as the statue of the patron Saint of Managua (Santo Domingo) is carried through the town to the Santiago Shrine.
