October 20th is the holiday known in Guatemala as Revolution Day. It commemorates the October Revolution of 1944 in which a virtually bloodless coup led to the overthow of the Ponce dictatorship and the presidency of Dr. Juan Jose Arevalo Bermejo.

Besides these there are loud celebrations with music and more, centring on the Plaza Mayor in Guatemala City. Guatemalans are fond of setting off fireworks, and this is no exception. Government tolerates and promotes the day as a good stress reliever for citizens, who the next day returns to their daily lives.
