annexation of guanacaste

flying into Liberia 23, will be staying in Tamarindo...anyone know about festival/parades associated with annexation of nicoya guanacaste that happens on July 25th. Looks like most events happen in Liberia. Should we attempt to go back to Liberia for day trip?

There will be celebrations of one sort or another all over Guanacaste - but - the main events will be in Liberia and the town of Nicoya. It would be a real experience to visit either of these and enjoy the parades, bands, food and music. And maybe a horse parade or oxcart parade.

But you may want to stay outside of Liberia--I believe that celebrations begin at dawn with drums banging and all sorts of noise. Is that right, Hattie? But the celebrations should be a lot of fun as they are not events put on for tourists but local festivities by and for the people who are 'Costa Rican by choice'. Lots of cowboys, whooping and traditional food and music. Have a great time!
