Festival Blanca Navidad

       Everything has been prepared to the most important annual Christmas event that took place in Liberia down town on December 3th at 6:00 pm, the parade started from the Gas Station traffic lights on the main street boulevard, as is usual streets were prepared with Christmas lights and some Christmas Carols. In that parade participate Educative Centers, Banks, Stores and many city commerce such restaurants, art and culture groups and more. Liberia City and suburbs enjoys this parade because they try to do the best participation to show an excellent show during evening and night time and of course the weather was so good that night.

        In this event the main character was Miguel Fajardo Corea who is a famous poet and writer, he was born in Liberia city and he has won important national awards such 2001 national award to culture an diffusion, 2008 Mauro Fernandez Award and 2009 Omar Dengo Universidad Nacional Award; he shows us that he is one of the most important writer and poet around Costa Rica but mainly his humble personality is the most important characteristic that he has. He is an example of personal overcoming for everybody.

 

        In this festival fourteen bands would be participating, among them 12 national and two international bands one of them from Panama: El Hogar band and from Nicaragua: Rosendo Lopez. At parade ending  people went home so tired but excited at the same time, so this activity is one of the most expected during the year and it shows how important is the culture expression and of course Christmas celebrations for the Costa Rican character.
