Hello folks! It's Independence Day in Quito! And everyone passing through Quito should figure out which night this weekend they're going to visit the Festival of Light (Festival de la Luz) taking place tonight through Sunday night in Old Town.
The Festival of Light is an event that brings a lot of people into Old Town for an artistic take on a handful of Quito's historic churches. The churches have colorful and changing images projected onto them in a way that mixes the wonderful architecture with the digital and quasi-psychadelic art scene here.
Churches will be lit up each night from 7pm to just before Midnight. Enjoy!
Traffic can be bad, so we recommend going early (or late) if you are going in a taxi. Otherwise, busses are the way to go!
