Summer Fair in Playa Pelada to Raise Funds for Water Hookup

This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 15-17, a lineup of games, activities and music are being hosted by the Association of Neighbors of Playa Pelada to raise funds to help families in the area pay for the water hookups.

Water tubes donated by Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA) were installed in November of 2012 to allow 36 families that live within the Ostional Wildlife Refuge in Playa Pelada to be able to connect to the ASADA Playas de Nosara (local water service), but the families must pay the regular fee of 93,635 colones each ($187.25) for the individual water hookups. 

The Summer Fair will include games for children and adults starting at noon daily, as well as food and drinks, karaoke and discomovil each evening from around 8 to 10 p.m. On Saturday, special activities will include chasing a buttered pig to win a prize at around 3 p.m. as well as an equestrian ribbon race around 4 p.m.  On Sunday evening, around 6 p.m. there will be a comical show called “Las Chicas Exoticas” (The Exotic Girls). 

According to Harry Duarte Rojas, president of the Association of Neighbors, people will be asked for a collaboration of 1500 colones ($3), but that includes a beverage, beer or shot.

Activities will take place on an empty lot in the neighborhood near the house of Olga Eduarte Corea (turn right at Il Peperoni Restaurant). Eduarte said the Association of Neighbors obtained permission from Minaet (the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Telecommunications) to hold the event there.
