The Canadian Club of Costa Rica is hosting a Canada Day Picnic tomorrow, Sunday, June 30, 2013, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm to celebrate Canada's 146th birthday on July 1, 2013.
The location of the picnic is at Quinta Romavista (Atenas), Barrio Mercedes. Admittance at the gate: 2,000 colones. Children 10 and under free.
There will be live music, dancing, swimming, local artisans, a "buy it now" table, a 50-50 draw and, what I am looking forward to, a tug-o-war with the Atenas bomberos! There will also be a silent auction fundraiser, with the proceeds going to Costa Rican schools.
The Canadian Ambassador, Wendy Drukier, will be there. And let's not forget the food - Canadian bacon on a bun, Nanaimo bars, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, etc. will be available for purchase.
Everyone is welcome - this is your chance to be a Canuck for a day!
Directions to Quinta Romavista: From highway 3, turn north at the flashing light (by Biblica Church), go 2 kms, Quinta Romavista is on the left. This is the same facility where the Atenas Chili Cook-Off was held this year.
