Confetti to be Banned At Xmas Festivities
For years, downtown San José’s Avenida Central has gotten dumped with fake “snow” as Ticos throw handfuls of confetti during December’s Avenidazo festivities. But this year, the San JoséMunicipality says it plans to ban the confetti, which poses health and safety problems.
Citizens have denounced the throwing of confetti before the Public Health Ministry, claiming they’ve been harmed by people throwing handfuls of it at them as they walk by.
Confetti throwing will be replaced by cultural activities Dec. 15-22, according to a statement from the municipality.
