According to Bonifacio Diaz, Samara syndic, who is coordinating the event, 70 musicians from two symphonic groups, The Cartago Band and The Liberia Regional Band, will play regional music to commemorate the annexation of Guanacaste to Costa Rica. In addition, three couples will perform folkloric dances and a male vocalist will sing.

Diaz explained that the groups were originally planning to perform in Jicaral but do to lack of lodging had to find a new venue. They contacted Diaz and he jumped on the opportunity to host such an event in Samara for the first time.
