Arising out of native Andean and Hispanic traditions, the Carnaval de negros y blancos (Black and White Carnival) in San Juan de Pasto in south-western Colombia is a great celebration lasting from 28 December to 6 January each year.
The celebrations begin on the 28th with the Carnival of Water, the throwing of water in homes and on the streets to initiate a festive mood.
