Alvarado explained that organizers can re-apply for permits and hold the event in a month or two.

The mayor told the press that it was minutes before 6:00 pm Thursday when the Tribunal Contencioso (Courts) gave the municipality the right to shut down the event.

“At this time we are coordinating with the local police for the closing process”, Alavardo told La Nacion this morning.
