Silleteros at the Medellin Flower Festival - Flower Vendors

Silletero Flower Carriers Photos From Medellin Feria de Las Flores

Silleteros -- flower vendors -- are the fantastic focus of the festivities during the Desfile de Silleteros (Silleteros Parade), the can't-miss event of the annual Medellin Flower Festival when silleteros (learn what "silletero" means) carry flowers in all forms, including as flowered medallions weighing up to 100 pounds, through Medellin's streets with wonderfully understated pageantry. As Medellin is one of the world's largest suppliers of fresh flowers, it stands to reason that the flowers on display during Medellin's Flower Festival in the first week of August are a peerlessly delightful sight to see; see for yourself in some silleteros photos from Medellin's Flower Festival below...
