PHOTOS: Costa Rica’s Festival of Light

December 17, 2017

Costa Rica’s traditional Festival de la Luz, a holiday parade through the heart of San José, filled the capital with holiday spirit on Saturday. This year’s winner: the float from flour and corn products company Demasa, followed by Kolbi and the National Insurance Institute (INS).

Hard to tell which has higher wattage: this float, or its small rider's smile. AFP Photo/Ezequiel Becerra
