Children’s Museum to brighten up the countdown to Christmas

November 27, 2009

All eyes will focus on the lights and theatrics and all ears will tune in to special music Tuesday, for the annual illumination of the grounds at the Children´s Museum in San José. The festivities, officially announcing the arrival of the Christmas season in Costa Rica, will begin at 6 p.m.

The program, “El Pasito Mágico” (The Magic Step), is open to the public and will include the illumination of hundreds of lights on the grounds of the museum, which resembles a castle. Also, spectators will be treated to a variety of music, song, dance, theater and monumental three-dimensional projections against the yellow museum walls. The evening will wrap up with a fireworks display, according to a press release issued by the Children´s Museum.

Adriana Alvarado, artistic director of the show, describes the project as a “mega-production.”
