Bienvenido a la Diablada De Pillaro 👹😈😱
Welcome to the Diablada of Pillaro, a town festival where residents dress up as masked devils. This tradition dates back to colonial times where the Spaniards invested the provinces and named our indigenous peoples as savage devils. The monstrous masks served to scare the Spanish invaders and the white masks served to make fun of the Spaniards and their culture.
Typically this festival lasts for 5-7 days, people in the crowds are invited to dance and drink shots of moonshine. ¡QUE VIVA LA DIABLADA!!! #QUEVIVA#ECUADOR#ECUALIFE#FIESTAS#DIABLADA#winterbreak#traditions
