When is Fiesta del Milagro in 2012?

Will the festivities be only on Saturday, Sept. 15, this year? Or will there be festivities throughout the week, with the most picturesque on Sept. 15? And if so, when on that day, morning, early afternoon, evening? We unfortunately likely will have to depart Salta on Sept. 15, in the afternoon at the latest, and so we may not have much of a choice here, but we would like to see if we can optimize our flights somehow so as to observe as much of the festivities as we can. Thank you!

La Fiesta del Milagro is the most religious Celebration in the NW if Argentina. It starts in July, and until September teh Schools are invited to participate in the Services.... There are services the whole day every day, and the town looks very active. People are all over around the main Sqaure but the main festivities, when hundred of pilgrims arrive to SALTA walking are during September 13th, 14th and 15th ending the celebrations with a huge procession .

The Festivities conmemotates the Earthquakes that took place in SALTA in September 1692, When the city was saved by the Lord and Virgin of Miracle.

This time of the yearseveral trees bloom and the colorus everywhere gives the whoel area a different atmosphere!!!!

September 15th the procession starts in the early afternoon and ends late, around 8 p.m.

But during the morning you see the people coming walking for kilometers just as a sacrifice tot he Sacred imageries!

Warm regards,
