Medellin Colombia Cabalgata 2014
This week in
In 2014, Cabalgata was cancelled from the annual Feria de Las Flores due to pressure from animal rights groups and concerns over how many horses died each year from the event. Emotions over the cancellation wee very mixed. Many people were happy but we believe a lot more were very disappointed. Cabalgata is the premier event of the festival and was steeped in deep tradicion.
The fesstival organiers have agreed to reinstate Cabalgata in the 2015 festival but the route will be shortened by a significant amount.
It just means more people will have to crowd into tighter spaces along a shorter route. We will update you with new photos and videos of the event this year as we plan to be in the thick of things.
