Transcript of Spanish Vacation Project in Preterite/Imperfect

La Celebración La Celebración Flower Festival History Began in 1957, when Mr. Arturo Uribe Arango invited a group of “silleteros” from Santa Elena to Medellín to sell flowers to people and to decorate the altars of churches for a parade that was meant to show the town's beauty.

The invitation was accepted by 40 “silleteros” who gathered in El Parque de Bolívar. They were such a hit that a group of citizens proposed that the farmers could prepare a more organized and attractive parade through the main roads of the “Beautiful Villa”; this gave birth to what we now know as the Flower Bearers Parade.

For a better comfort, not only for those moving the merchandise but also for those wanting to buy it, the country-people designed the "Sillas" which were made out of wood . It has a back and two grips that allows the silleteros to hang it on their shoulders. This helped loading large quantities of flowers with a lower physical burden. An object like this had been already used to transport people through steep mountains during the colonial period.

The use of the “silleta” was generalized, and with it, the word “silletero” which was assigned to those people who devoted their lives to sell flowers in the rocky streets of Medellín at the beginning of the 20th century. La Celebración La feria era muy hermosa y divertidas.

Mateo y yo no jugamos ninguno juegos pero hay muchas juegos y actividades para niños.
La feria empiezo a las seis en la tarde.
El tiempo hacia hermosa cuando estuvimos en Medellin. Silletas- Usually means saddle but they also use it to describe the flower "sillas" that the farmers make the night before the big silleteros parade. Cuando era niña...
