teatroheredia
Santiago de Cuba, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) The 42nd edition of the Caribbean Festival or Fiesta del Fuego (Fire Festival), being held in this eastern Cuban city from from Jul 3-9, resumes its activities with the splendor that characterizes each annual event.

This year’s festival is dedicated to Mexico and its life and death celebrations, a practice that accompanies the daily life of that nation, in which spirituality, magic, cultural diversity, and history converge.

The Cuban Ministry of Culture and the Provincial Directorate of Culture in Santiago de Cuba organized the Fire Festival.

More than 20 open-air stages will host a program, including specialized meetings, workshops on religions in Cuba and the Caribbean, ceremonies and rituals, and a popular music forum, as in previous editions of the event.

The festival, which was first held as a Caribbean event in 1981, pays tribute to culture and exalts the most authentic roots of the Cuban and Caribbean peoples’ spirituality.
