El Dia de Lempira

On July 20th, the local schools celebrated El Dia de Lempira (The day of Lempira), one of the national heros. Some of the school children dress up in traditional dresses and some participate in folkloric dances. The celebration lasts all day. Food and music are one of the main attractions. Some of the food favorites include tamales, yuca con chicharon, catrachitas and mondongo. Lisbeth and Vanessa were dressed in traditional dresses. All of the children attended school that day and were very happy to participate in the celebration.
