San José is fully in Christmas mode. The Municipality has prepared an agenda of activities to celebrate the season. We all look forward to the Festival de la Luz. Band Fest is a new addition this year.
The festivities begin with a food truck fair in the square of the Iglesia de la Soledad this Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 7 pm. The traditional Aguinaldo dance will be held on Saturday night.
The Christmas lighting will be on December 3, at 6 pm. On that same day, the igloo will be inaugurated in the Plaza de la Democracia. From the 4th to the 7th, the “Avenidazo” celebrations will take place on Central Avenue. Guest bands include Los Hicsos, Enuague Bucal, and Madera Nueva.
Band Fest will take place on December 8th from 8 am to 12 pm at the Estadio Ernesto Rohrmoser. This will present the bands that will be part of the Festival of Light on the 14th. On the 25th, the Fiestas de San José start and then the Tope and Carnaval will be on the 26th and 27th.
