With generally good weekend weather predicted for the Central Valley, residents have another chance to enjoy the outdoors all day before the rainy season begins in earnest.
But there also is a display of food products, and anyone in the market for a forklift will want to visit the ExpoIndustrial.
The weekend begins tonight with a 5 p.m. performance of a musical trio at the Teatro Nacional. This is a continuation of a free program at 5 p.m. that spotlights local music groups.
Spanish speakers may want to attend “La Bruta Espera” by Julio Chávez, a presentation of three short plays at the nearby Teatro Vargas Calvo. Show time is at 8 p.m., and there is an admission.
The IV Feria del Gustico Costarricense opens today at the Antigua Aduana on Calle 23 in east San José. Featured are the food products of a number of mostly smaller firms. There are samples. Products such as coffee, bakery goods, jams and jellies and ice cream will be offered, said organizers.
The food fair runs through Sunday.
The Cámera de Industrias organized ExpoIndustrial 2015. The event is at the Pedregal Event Center through Saturday. A lot of local manufacturers have displays.
Also continuing today through Saturday is the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week San José, which features incredibly thin women showing off clothing from Costa Rican manufacturers. This is a Credomatic event, so there is an admission at the Hotel Intercontinental in Escazú.
Watching the burger-challenged young women on the runway is sure to make spectators hungry, so a quick dash to a local restaurant may be in order. A.M. Costa Rica’s restaurant directory is available with a link to the right.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said that unstable air would bring a lot of clouds to much of the country. Rain is expected in the central and south Pacific as well as on the Caribbean coast and the northern zone.
But the forecast for the Central Valley is cloudy with isolated showers. Vacationers on the Nicoya peninsula also should see some rain in the afternoon.
