The Municipalidad de San José is closing down Paseo Colón Sunday and will continue to do so each Sunday through April 24 to provide a place for festivals and family gatherings.
The municipality has a list of events that will be staged there, including the Fiesta de Gallo Pinto March 20.
Sunday, the first closing, will be from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There will be dancing, theater and booths set up by the municipality. There also will be booths set up by the recreation division that will provide presentations of various sports. There also will be a way open for bicyclists and skaters.
The municipality has done the same thing in past years, but there seems to be more formal activities planned this year.
