Marie’s restaurant will be hosting a Halloween party with live music by the Electric Storm, dinner and drink specials and prizes for the best costumes, Oct. 31 starting at 7:30 p.m. 

Time to retire the rain boots and flip-flops and strap on some dancing shoes! Members of Country Day School Guanacaste’s parent community will host a smashing sequel to last year’s Holiday in Paradise party at the elegant Reserva Conchal Beach Club on Saturday, Dec. 3. Enjoy live music and cool drinks while knocking out some holiday shopping by bidding on silent auction items including surfing specials, salsa lessons, sunset cruises and more. Raffles for electronic items will be on offer as well. Tickets include two drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a dinner buffet, and cost $50 in advance, $60 at the door, or $45 each for a table for 10. Last year’s event sold out quickly, so get your tickets fast at Café Café in Tamarindo, El Coconut Beach Club in Potrero, RE/MAX Beach Realty in the commercial center at the entrance to Country Day, or at the school. A portion of the proceeds will again benefit the nonprofits CEPIA and Mano y Mano.

Ruta La Paz 5K and 10K road race is set for Nov. 19. Join La Paz Community School as it celebrates healthy living and community education by uniting participants of all ages and skills through positive sport, while raising funds for scholarships. To see the course map and more event details, access the official race site via the link on the school’s home page at www.lapazschool.org. Register before Nov. 1 for $20 at La Paz Community School, Nogui’s Restaurant or Newton stores in San José. During and after the race, all are welcome to a celebratory beach party with popular Costa Rican band Ojo de Buey. Event sponsorships are available; contact Brian Crites at mrbrian@lapazschool.org for information.
