Seú Harvest Festival Parade

In April, more than 2,000 locals of all ages come together to celebrate the island’s harvest festival. Originally a festive march through the field, the seú is made up of graceful dance steps, called “wapa,” which mimic the movements used in planting and harvesting back in the 17th century. Today, the march is part of a large festival where locals dress up in traditional costumes and parade through the streets of Otrobanda and Banda Abou.
