The weather could not have been better for the American Colony Committee July 4 picnic Saturday morning.
The day was pure Costa Rica with a bright sun and wisps of clouds in a bright blue sky.
The event saw many Costa Ricans as well as U.S. citizens attending, and various organizations, like the American Legion, the Marine Corps League and expat political and social groups maintaining booths.
Of course, the climax was the singing of the Costa Rican national anthem and two members of the U.S. Embassy security detachment raising the U.S. Flag to the sounds of the Star Spangled Banner.
