Jacó Happenings

Lots of Halloween parties are being announced in the Central Pacific. Oz Bar and Hotel’s Halloween bash is set for Saturday, Oct. 29, on Calle Central, and Backyard’s Halloween party out in Playa Hermosa will be on Oct. 31. The Backyard now has its new Bottle VIP Lounge open on Wednesdays. Both events will feature local live music by the Chupacabras.

Check out the Jacó Rays playing Sunday against Saprissa de Corazón at the soccer field in front of the municipality. And don’t forget: Today is the last day to register for the water leg of the Eco Cup triathlon Oct. 15 in Herradura. To register, go to www.aguasabiertas.com

A beach cleanup is scheduled for Oct. 28 beginning at the Best Western in Jacó. For more information on how to help keep our beaches clean, contact Gabriela Arias at the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce at 2643-2853.

Riviera Home Center has received a new shipment of goods for the home; stop in and see Gabriela Alpízar or Carolina Irias at their location in Jacó. For information, call 2643-1860.

Mark your calendars for two upcoming events in November: the annual McKee Project Jacó Fundraiser the second week of the month, and the 10th annual Pura Vida No Pro the third week. For more information, go to www.mckee-jaco.org or www.heartsofstone.org

Also, lots of exciting news will be coming out of Teatro Jacó and the new Oceans Center complex, which will be bringing the world of entertainment to Jacó. Check out www.teatrojaco.com for a preview of the upcoming schedule.
