fourth of july
Avenida Escazú hosted one of the largest Independence Day parties in Costa Rica.
Come one, come all to the American Colony Committee's Fourth of July Picnic, this year at Avenida Escazú.
The picnic, organized by the American Colony Committee, dates back to 1961 and is a beloved tradition for many U.S. expats in Costa Rica.
As in years past, Saturday's picnic included a flag-raising ceremony and singing of the U.S. and Costa Rican national anthems as well as games, music, dancing, great food, and plentiful beer.
