Winter Festival in Patagonia

This is a colorful and joyous carnival that celebrates the beginning of winter, and along with it, the longest night of the year.  It is a traditional festival with decorated floats, dance troupes, and costumes that flood the streets of the snow-covered city, creating a one-of-a-kind spectacle.

During the winter festival there is also a food-tasting event with hot dishes, ending with a firework show on the boardwalk of the Magellan Strait that lights up the cold, southern sky.
