Rain and Music Aplenty at Rainforest Aid

June 26, 2009

Celebrate U.S. Independence Day the old-fashioned way – with a picnic.

Come ride the bucking bull. Listen to the fabulous music of Mustang 65. Join in the kids’ games (with prizes), or mosey around a multitude of classic cars while you mingle with family and friends. Watch the traditional flag-raising ceremony, and don’t miss the square dancers and cheerleaders, all at the U.S. Independence Day Picnic Friday, July 3, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Start the day with a bagel and cream cheese and a cup of Café Britt coffee, then head on over to the hot dog stand and pick up one or two with all the trimmings. Add a tasty side of coleslaw and then grab a beer or a soft drink – all included in the ¢2,500 ($4.40) admission (free for kids 5 and under).

Organized by the American Colony Committee, the picnic will be held at the Cervecería Costa Rica grounds on the highway to the airport, west of San José. Large signs clearly point the way and will show you how to reach the parking lots, where shuttle buses zip you to and fro.

The event is open to all U.S. citizens and their dependents. For more information and a downloadable map, visit www.americancolonycr.org.
