Puerto Rican Wall Art Decor
The festival in the city of Ponce in Puerto Rico, called Ponce Carnival, had been yearly
celebrated for 150 years already since its beginning in 1858. It is an interesting event as
a spectator will witness several locals wearing the famous costumes of the creatures
they call "vejigantes" or devils. Each vejigante wears a mask, a cape and a suit.
Vejigantes may wear colorful costumes and even wear the colors red, blue and white of
the Puerto Rican flag. But a vejigante must have a mask that should not just be any
ordinary horrific-looking mask like what people wear in Halloween costume parties.
The mask must also be complete with fangs, snout and horns. Click here Vejigante
masks for more details.
This celebration is usually held during the month of February, before the Lenten
season which is signified by Ash Wednesday. If it is linked with the Catholic religion,
then why would they be wearing demon suits? Actually, these "vejigantes," have a
noble and symbolic mission to perform, despite their demonic costumes. They will be
going around town, armed with their "vejigas" or inflated cow bladders, and they will
be whipping or striking the children or passers by with these weapons - but only as an
outward appearance of it, without their intention of hurting - to drive evil spirits away.

Spectators will be delighted to join the joyful crowd as they chant noisily to encourage
the vejigantes to do their task. Aside from that, they may eat and drink merrily, listen
or dance to traditional music, salsa or popular music, and watch the parade of the
King and Queen of the Carnival. All these festivities end with the appropriate "Burial
of the Sardine" where a coffin with a model fish is burnt, signifying the burning of sins
and the start of Lent. To get learn more about the Puerto Rican masks.
