Karel Navarro, AP — A festival was organized by Peru’s town of Huanuco to celebrate native customs in culinary art, dance and music.  People from Peru's Andean highlands, who have emigrated for decades to the capital in search for opportunities, organize fairs on various dates on the outskirts of Lima to honor various patron saints, celebrate anniversaries or to celebrate local customs.
