5th Annual Pitaya Fest approaches
Starting on Feb. 23, the 5th annual Pitaya Fest is expected to attract about 5,000 people to Playa Hermosa in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. The event will showcase music from local musicians, such as Cables Pelao, Milly Majuc and Run Dun Crew. Several Costa Rican artists and Pantalones Calientes from Mexico will also make an appearance.
The music festival will include a two-day surfing competition, and the tournament will pre-select participants for the ISA Junior World Championship in June 2013.
The festival will raise funds for Casa Llanta, which provides scholarship programs and English classes in the community of El Carizal. Money raised will also go to transportation and teachers’ salaries at Los Pipitos, a school for people with disabilities.
