16:43 | Lima, Aug. 12.

With a record attendance of over 300,000 people in 14 days, Culturaymi —Lima 2019's cultural program— ended at Parque de la Exposición (Exposition Park).

The event came to an end with colorful parades, spectacular fireworks, and the popular band Bareto, as a grand finale. 
A couple of minutes before their presentation, the theater group Yuyachkani performed a play and then Maria de Son —a band inspired by "Tunantada" from the Valley of Mantaro with a contemporary fusion proposal— took the stage.

Culturaymi became the cultural festival during almost two weeks of intense days that showcased culture, entertainment, music on two stages, crafts, gastronomy, art, history, and much more. 

It should be noted entrance to the activities was free of charge.

This enormous project —uniting sports by promoting values and setting a great precedent in for the delivery of cultural activities in the Inca country— returns for one week on August 24, following the opening ceremony of the Parapan American Games (August 23).

It had a large number of spectators, and the experience was very positive. There are already high expectations for its reopening next Saturday at Parque de la Exposicion.

Among the artists that will be part of this new edition of Culturaymi are Dina Paucar, Damaris, Pamela Rodriguez, Fragil, Colectivo Circo Band, and Laguna Pai. 

There will also be plays for children and adults, dancing, workshops, and parades.
