Costa Rican Independence Day Parade

On September 15th the students of Green Life Academy and other schools near Playas Del Coco got a chance to show their national pride.  September 13th starts La corrida de la antorcha, September 14th Los faroles, and September 15th marks the student pride parades.  Green Life students made a festive float with decoration and got a chance to dress up in traditional Costa Rican attire.  See the pictures below.

And be sure and check out Nature Air’sarticle about history behind the celebrations in Coco.

Excerpt from Nature Air’s website about the festivities:

“Children dressed in traditional garb and armed with patriotic flags began the procession, followed by various floats. At least three public schools and all of the private schools in the area attended with floats, marching bands and bastoneras, or baton throwers. This was a real improvement over last year when, according to part-owner of Green Life Academy Joshua Arce, only two or three schools participated.”
