Semana Santa is celebrated in San Lucas Tolimán with the same fervor as the rest of the country and a few peculiarities. One significant change is the use of pine needles for the preparation of most procession carpets, or alfombras, as well as the construction of arches made out wood poles. Hanging from these arches are decorative lights as well as a number of contraptions filled with confetti which is dropped over the passing procession by pulling on a cord. This Duffy Duck Cucurucho is one of the most fun ones I have seen in the last few years.
