Parranda Fest is a huge annual music event at Palmento Grove in Hopkins, and it is held the night of Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. It's an all night concert featuring "indigenous cultural music" (according to their Facebook page) - it starts at 7 pm and ends at 7 am, but things don't really get going before midnight. We met up with several friends and hung out at the concert together. We had a blast, though we could only stay until about 5 am because we needed to get some sleep before leaving later that day for Belize City to pick up our friends.
