Cuba Celebrates Dancing Companies in Carnaval Habanero 2018
Cubans celebrate the Carnaval Habanero 2018. Parades, music, dance, costumes, and colors have filled the streets of Havana in the event, which takes place between August 18 and August 26. This year, the carnival is dedicated to the 500 Years since the foundation of the Villa of San Cristóbal de La Habana.
This year also celebrates the anniversaries of dance companies Los Componedores, 110, and El Alacran, 80 for La Jardinera and 40 for Los Cabildos.
The carnival is the largest popular party in Havana.
Los Componedores de Batea delighted the public and celebrated its 110 anniversary.
Music bands also participated in the carnival.
This year the carnival is accompanied by an extensive cultural agenda throughout the city's cultural centers.
"Maintaining this legacy for so many years is a responsibility, and despite all the obstacles we have found in the way, here we show the audience that it is possible," a member of Los Componedores said.
Celebrations will end with this Sunday when the jury selects the winners of best float, character, and music.
