On May 14th Paraguay will celebrate 200 years of independence. The festivities have already begun and many municipalities are holding ceremonial lightings of liberty torches. But the real party begins on Friday the 13th, and should last into the wee hours of the following Monday Morning.
While the center of the celebration will certainly be Asuncion, there are plenty of activities outside of the capital as well. To see the schedule of events, click here.
