To the streets we go, bearing lanterns

September 13, 2017

Homes, pulperías, busts of Keylor Navas, chorreadores complete with coffee mugs. You’ll see it all if you venture into the streets this evening after 6 p.m. for the traditional desfile de faroles, or lantern parade. Read more about the history of this tradition here.
