Cartagena‚Äôs Independence day falls on November 11,  the day when the city officially declared its independence from Spain in 1811. However, it was not until Simon Bolivar and his revolutionary troops crossed the Andes six years later that Cartagena was truly liberated from Spain. Simon Bolivar and his rag tag troops liberated the entire continent and is a hero across South America, much like how George Washington is to the US.  Now the holiday is a week long celebration that incorporates numerous parades and parties throughout the city.  It even coincides with the Miss Colombia Padgeant.
