Oruro Carnival

Bolivia’s largest annual celebration, which centres around La Diablada ­ the ‘Dance of the Devils’ ­ a 4km-long, 20-hour procession, featuring 20,000 costumed dancers and 10,000 costumed musicians, led by a dancer dressed as San Miguel. And ends with a mass water bomb fight, in which visitors are likely to be the main target.
