Giant Kites at Sumpango
This is one of our most colorful traditions held the Day of The Dead in November 30th at the town of Sumpango, 60 km west Guatemala City. They fly their kites as a way to get in touch with their deads and to scary the bad spirits, a similar show is also held in the near town of Santiago Sacatepequez. The bigger kites are only for show, they can't fly due to their large dimensions.
