Initially, according to Benny, the idea was to spend two nights at the carnival. Finally it was decided to make one. “But hey, this is the beginning. We are very happy that we have achieved a union that respects and restores Carnival in Florencio Varela,” he said.

Besides the carnival traditions, a member of Puca Berá made a request regarding the use of the carnival Artificial snow sprays. “We ask for care and respect regarding the issue of snow,” he said. Suits and feathers are wealth, you cannot shop from day to day because quality feathers do not arrive also because of what is happening not only in Argentina but all over the world. Stones cause everything costs a lot. So we have to try to take care of what we have.”

“I can’t explain to you what it’s like to have managed to put together a group of people with the same ideal, the same desire for Carnival to return,” Gabriella said excitedly.

Regarding the presentation that Boca Bera will make at the Comparsas Parade, he said he would relate “The Birth of the Phoenix” But it is associated with the falcon, the bird that defines Florencio Varela.

“What distinguishes us from Varela is Varela Falcon,” he explained. So we took the proposal to make the falcon how it floats on the surface, how it is born, and how it transforms through religion and mysticism. And on this occasion the phoenix passes gold at birth, passes through the whites of purity, the bright blue, and passes through all colors until it reaches red when it catches fire and reappears.
