This weekend, the Colombian Caribbean city of Cartagena will overflow with dance, parades and music as its citizens celebrate the city’s Independence Day.

The city-wide party is in honor of the date that Cartagena became the first Colombian city to declare Independence from the Spanish in 1811.

The traditional “Battle of Flowers Parade” kicked off the festival Thursday afternoon where 21 delegates of the Miss Colombia beauty pageant rode decorated floats through the city.

Fireworks will light up the skies every night this weekend and traditional afro-caribbean music played by native bands is sure to prompt dancing in the streets during all hours of the day.

The biggest highlight of the festival will be the crowning of Miss Colombia on Sunday, November 10.
