Flower Festival

In early August of each year Medellín dresses up in colours for the Flower Festival. This celebration was born in 1957 and has events like the Festival of Orchestras. The climax of the event is the Silleteros (saddler’s) parade, where flower farmers design beautiful arrangements which are carried on their backs.  Each saddle, which can weigh up to 70 kilos and measure 5 meters in diameter is made of up to 25 different varieties of flowers.
