On Good Friday the Rotaract Club of Benque Viejo took part in one of Benque’s most exuberant traditions, the makings of Alfombras. Thank you Benque House of Culture (NICH) for keeping us so energized and for supporting us the entire way. And Thank you to the club members who’ve been up since 5am planning and working on today’s cultural project. Happy Easter!

Sawdust As Magical As Stardust

This year Beqnue Viejo fought through COVID regulations and hard times at NICH to make their usual sawdust tapestries.

This is usually only one component of a larger religious festival involving a re-enactment of the passion of Jesus Christ - but that could not happen due to COVID.

The coordinator of the House of culture told us how the sawdust had to happen though:

The Coordinator of the Benque House of Culture says the town hopes that it can return to the re-enactment of the passion next Good Friday.
