In the early years of last century, the riches families of Cochabamba celebrated carnival with a parade of cars, played with perfumed water in eggshells and for the "cacharpaya" (or feast) and then went to eat to their homes.
The south part of the city of Cochabamba has its own parade which usually takes place a week after the Carnaval de la Concordia. The zone of Jayhuayco becomes the scenario where many groups dance and drink. Llamerada, Morenada, Caporales and Taquipayanaku are all danced.
Carnival in the rural communities in the highlands starts, according to their traditions with the Carnival Sunday, where all the food is bought to prepare the burning of the ritual table. The following day on monday all the extended family gathers and they eat at noon. Later they celebrate and prepare two white sticks, they drink and start marking sheep with earrings, cows, donkeys and other animals are also marked in some manner. Then they start drinking and start the Ch'alla, which is a ritual where they communicate with the Pachamama (mother earth).
