The Comité Auxiliar de la Cruz Roja in Ciudad Quesada plans a tope or horse parade Sunday in that community. The goal is to raise money for the committee and to honor two long-time members, Carlos Zamora Acuña, who has served 42 years and Ademar Trejos Pérez for his 33 years.
The event was organized by the Caballistas de San Carlos in honor of Alberto Rodríguez Baldì, owner of the Hotel Baldi Hot Springs Aguas Termales.
The entry fee is 10,000 colons, about $20, which will go to the volunteer committee.
Riders will start in Barrio San Roque north of the city and parade through the center passing the municipal building and the Roman Catholic church, said organizers.
