Lots of Peruvians and tourists visit the Andean town of Ayacucho to celebrate Holy week. Ayacucho is famous for putting on an extra special celebration for the week of Semana Santa by carpeting the streets with flower art. There are massive street processions with the icons of saints being carried over the carpets of flowers. The festivities reach their peak with a candlelit procession followed by a firework display on the Saturday before Easter but besides this there are also many other things going on like art shows concerts and even cookery competitions.
