Started Registering Voters Today at Festival of Life

It took 6 of us to register 12 new absentee voters this morning and hopefully
the afternoon shift will do an ever better job!  🙂

During just the first morning we had a guitar-playing singer, DJ, and this Red Cross group
drumming on exercise balls and dancing. Interesting! Along with many tables selling food, arts & crafts.

This is a fun fiesta in Central Park with lots of booths/tables for many purposes including the one I’m helping at to register Americans for Absentee Voting back in the states. There is live musical entertainment almost constantly all weekend and the big fundraiser is the International Food Festival on Sunday where people can taste samples of all the entries and vote on the best for only 3,000 Colones (about $5). One of the benefactors is Hogar de Vida, the local children’s home that my friends from Nashville are coming to serve in this April. 
It is interesting that the Tico Times article used old photos from past year’s Chili Cook Offs which this replaces. Quite a bit different this year! I’m starting a photo gallery on the 2018 Festival de Vida to which I will add photos each day.

¡Pura Vida!
