Festival de la Luz comes to San José Saturday

December 12, 2013

Saturday an expected 1 million spectators will flood the sidewalks of San José’s Paseo Colón and Avenida Segunda for the annual Christmas parade, The Festival of Lights.

Since 1996, the municipality of San José has united the country’s best marching bands and pitted businesses against each other in a float making competition. The top prize goes to the float that “shines the brightest.”

The country’s World Cup bound soccer team, “La Sele” will be the parade’s grand marshals.

The parade will begin at 6 p.m. at the National Gymnasium on the eastern end of La Sabana park and wind its way down to the National Museum. A puppet pre-show begins at 3 p.m.
