Los Vejigantes


In Loíza a town in the northeast in Puerto Rico, are held carnaval celebrations in observance to the week-long festival of Santiago Apóstol, beginning July 25th. In these lively carnaval traditions townspeople dress as one the four historic characters: The Caballero (Spanish-Knight), the Vejigante (Evil), el Viejo (men dressed with raggedy or torn clothing) and La Loca (men dressed as crazy ladies who sweep the streets and balconies asking for money.

I was reading about this festival on a few websites and in a magazine excerpt and thought it was pretty interesting. I had written more but just want to see how I did so far. Can some please give corrections. Thank you.
