The Festival of the Flowers (La Feria de las Flores) is the most important festival of Antioquia and it takes place in Medellín in early August. The event has been celebrated every year since 1957. This festival has several activities such as antique cars parade, Desfíle de Silleteros (flower carriers parade), mass horse rides down the streets, exhibition of fondas from much of the towns in Antioquia, etc.
The Paisas, as Colombian's in Medellin are called, are some of the friendliest people on the planet......... :)
