What to do?

Are you in Costa Rica this December? Enjoy the Festival of Light!

 
 
It is a very popular tradition that each year, the Municipality of San José in Costa Rica organizes for the month of December the famous "Festival of Light" during the evening. It can be said that the activity marks the beginning of Christmas in the main streets of the San José province. 
 
This year the event is taken place on Saturday December 17 at 6 pm, normally the second Saturday of the month. Attractive carriages and music bands from all over the country, with the support of private and public companies, organizations and associations, will show their talent and creativity using lights. 
 
Normally, this parade starts in front of the national gymnasium on 42 Street.  It goes all the way through Paseo Colón, then along Second Avenue and it finishes in front of the Church of the Solitude. This year, the grand marshal is the well-known cyclist Andrey Amador. 
 
The people that come to the parade will be part of a spectacle full of color, lights and joy. It is an event for every member of the family and also foreigners and tourists that are visiting our country. Because of this, we recommend you to schedule this to be one of your activities. Also, we would like you to remember that, during these dates in the country, there are cold winds during the night and it is important to wear warm clothing and comfortable shoes due to the amount of hours you could be standing on your feet.  If you like, bring some snacks and a hot water vessel with a hot drink. 
 
 
 
 
 
Big talent and creativity using lights.
