More than 40,000 dancers and musicians took part in the Festival of the Feast of the Lord of Power through the streets of Bolivia’s capital of La Paz.

The annual festival lasted 15 hours. A dancer said that all of it was done with great devotion; the dance being to ask Tata (Lord of Great Power – Jesus) for health or something else that people wish for.

With some costumes costing as much as $20,000, the festival is an opportunity for participants to show off their economic power.

Difficult words: annual (happening every year), devotion (love and energy).
