Costa Rica band to feature in London New Year’s Parade

September 5, 2019

Big Ben, meet Pura Vida.

The Band of Orotina will participate in England’s largest New Year’s Day Parade in London on January 1, 2021.

The band will receive its credentials during a ceremony on September 13 at 9 a.m. at José Martí Park in Orotina, Alajuela. The event will be attended by Culture Minister Sylvie Durán and Robert Bone, execute director of the London New Year’s Day Parade.

Known by Londoners at LNYDP, the inaugural parade in 1987 included 2,000 performers. Recent iterations have welcomed more than 10,000 performers from across the world and a street audience of more than 500,000.

It won’t be the first time a Costa Rican band is showcased at a major international parade. Banda Municipal de Acosta represented Costa Rica when it participated in the 2019 Rose Parade in Pasadena, California.

The Band of Orotina was founded in 1990 and is comprised of 220 members.
