For the past ten years, this Costa Rican festival has given San Jose, Costa Rica residents a way to celebrate the end of each year as well as the beginning of the holiday season. Centred on a parade where attendees can observe floats, stilt walkers, masquerades, and bands progress through the country’s capital streets. The municipality of San Jose decorates the streets for the parade and even elects a Grand Marshall to lead the event.
