Bolivia became the first McDonald’s-free Latin American nation, after struggling for more than a decade to keep their numbers out of ‘the red’. After 14 years, and despite many corporate campaigns and promos, McDonald’s was forced to close in 2002 its 8 Bolivian restaurants in the major cities of La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

Full details of the festival which runs from the 13th to the 14th of December and includes food events are available on the LASC site.
