Part of the three-day celebration also includes the Ribbon Race or Carrera de Cintas, a horse race where riders dress in elaborate costumes boasting feathers and special jackets. The riders try to stay on their horses all day, doing rounds on the 328-foot track while drinking alcohol or agua ardiente. There are no winners or losers, and there are no consequences for falling. Marimba music is played throughout the day.
