Climate Fair and Oxcart Parade

This coming weekend (April 24, 25 and 26) is the annual Atenas Climate Fair and oxcart parade. This is the schedule:

There will be lots going on in the central park - music, dancing, food. Everyone loves the oxcart parade - the painted wooden carts are beautiful and the oxen are amazing. Bring your camera. The parade is on Sunday starting around 11:00 am.

Here's a picture I took at a previous year's parade:

This year I donated one of my smaller oxen paintings to the boyeros (oxcart drivers) for their raffle. I hope they make lots of colones. Here is the painting:
