Carnival 2010 in the streets of Tilcara (Argentina).

Local carnival traditions include throwing white talk powder, spray foam and confettis to the face of others.

During Carnival festivities in the small village of Tilcara, in the Andes mountains, young men dress up as devils (diablos) with colorful costumes covered with mirrors. Women hold the tail of a devil and everyone is drinking and dancing to the music of marching bands.
