He invites everyone to come and “Have fun with the mechanical rides and the tasty food typical of the zone.”

For the fiesta, rides and games will be set up in the plaza of Samara, and the running of the bulls will take place in front of Super San Rafael. Another highlight of the fiesta will be the presence of the famous bull Chirriche on January 1.

The events will kick off on Wednesday, December 29, with bulls from Hacienda Tres Leches from Santa Rosa of Santa Cruz and bull riders Los Coloniales from Nicoya.
