Every Corpus Christi (nine Thursdays after Holy Thursday), a ritual dance is performed by the so-called "Dancing Devils", who wear colorful garments (commonly all red), layers of stripped fabric, masks of grotesque appearance and also accessories like crosses, scapulars, rosaries and other sorts of amulets. The fraternity of the devils is divided in hierarchical order, represented in their masks. There are other expressions of this particular festivity named according to the location.

Filiberto Yanes fue capaz de darnos una lección a todos: Celebro que la Asociación de Scouts de Venezuela entendiera lo útil que un scout adulto puede ser y lo dispuesto a trabajar y servir que siempre está. Me alegra ver la contribución que realizara en el ámbito cultural que tan ligado está a la educación de los jóvenes scouts. En España seguimos desde hace mucho este tipo de ejemplos y ahora con el tuyo sentiremos mayor motivación..Enhorabuena Filiberto
