History of Feria de Las Flores
The first The Flowers Festival took place on May 1, 1957 and was organized by Arturo Uribe, a member of the Board of the Office of Development and Tourism. The festival lasted for five days with an exposition of flowers displayed in the Metropolitan Cathedral, which was organized by the Gardening Club of Medellín and monsignor Tulio Botero to celebrate Virgin Mary day. This flower parade represents the end of slavery when instead of flowers slaves carried men and women on their backs up steep hills. The first silleteros parade also took place with some 40 men from the corregimiento of Santa Elena carrying on their backs flower arrangements to the exposition site.

The festival initially took place during the month of May but was changed to August in 1958 to celebrate the independence of Antioquia. Since then, other events have been added like the International Pageant of the Flowers, the cavalcade, Guinness Records in 1996 and 1999, classic automobiles parade, Orchids exposition, among others.
What clothes to wear at the festival?
La Feria de las Flores is the ideal place to learn and to use the elements of traditional costumes paisas occasion. The carriel, one of the best known symbols of the region used over 100 years ago and many residents and tourists enjoy taking it as an accessory for various events because it is useful for storing objects.

The poncho is another typical element and is used as a coat in cold weather because it is made from pure wool; it is also decorative as many of them are made in various colors and styles.

For the city due to mild weather poncho is preferred, it is made of cotton, leading some threads of different colors as a special touch and terminal leads fringes. Similar to the mulera poncho is manufactured with much thicker thread and elongated, with decorative threads. This has historically had another useful because the carriers usually place it in the ears of the mules when loaded or unloaded for them to stay still.

Finally, sandals, made of sisal and cotton uppers, thick colored threads, shoes are very durable if care is appropriate.

These are some of the objects that make up the most classic and historical paisas outfits, many, taking advantage of this major event, resume to reaffirm their identity and return to their roots. However, fairgoers add hats, boots or dress casually, looking every convenience and following your taste.
