Sunday the Museo Histórico Cultural Juan Santamaría in Alajuela is joining with local artists and the municipality to offer a sidewalk market.
The event is being called Alajuela para los peatones or Alajuela for pedestrians. The museum is setting up sales areas on the narrow street that runs along the building’s east side. This is called the Pasaje León Cortés.
Offered for sale will be art works, books, recordings and antiques, said the museum. The event starts at 9 a.m. The street in front of the museum will be closed to provide for traditional games, dances for seniors and a cultural program of stories, poems and music.
