January 2, 2020

The Municipal Band of Zarcero represented Puerto Rico Costa Rico Costa Rica during the 2020 Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif.

Sure, the Rose Parade’s social media accounts twice called Costa Rica by the wrong name. But for those watching in person and on TV, the Municipal Band of Zarcero showcased the talent and joy of Costa Rica to an international audience.

And to that, we say: Puro Vida! 😉
