In the central act, there is the election and coronation of the Nacional Queen of the Harvest, after a party that shows a series of paintings representing life in Mendoza, the rural and urban areas.

On Sunday, the entire spectacle is repeated, adding numbers of artistic interpreters of the national hierarchy and a great fireworks show.
