The two-day Enamorate de tu Ciudad programs this weekend will be the last of the season.
In addition to San José the street festival will be in the central parks San Marcos de Tarrazú, Santa María de Dota, San Pablo de León Cortés and Paraíso de Cartago. This is the first season that the event was outside of the capital.
The program, put on by the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud, features music, dancing, visual arts, story telling and even chess. The hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
A special aspect of the weekend in Paraíso will be visual artist Francesco Bracci and his display of 25 photographs of the area, said the ministry.
