Buy alasitas is like to play that one day you can have wealth.
High plateau customs that brought the trades long time ago, that represent the cult to EKECO, god of abundance. The prosperity will be give, according to the belief, depending in what the customer buy.

The fair is during 30 days in the San Luis district, between the intersection with the second ring and Roca and Coronado avenue.
The EKECO is a guatoca figure and load with a lot of things, represent one man that a lot of years ago, in a famine period, appeared in the paths that led to Titicaca loaded with food that gave to everybody.
Alasitas, in Aymara language mean “buy me”.
