QCOSTARICA — Tomorrow, Saturday, is the light festival. And though the event is at night, be prepared for closures of major roads like Paseo Colon and Avenida Segunda.

The Policia de Tránsito says it is changing its operational timetable, starting with closures at 6:00am, instead of noon as it has done in years past.

Avenidas to the south and north of Paseo Colon and Avenida Segunda will be affected with partial closures. So will cross streets.

The Festival de la Luz is perhaps the single most attended event. The preparations and bandstand is located on the east face of the La Sabana park.

A total of nine floats, 13 marching bands and 12 cheerleading groups and hundreds more in between, from clowns, politicians and notable personalities will move from La Sabana to the Plaza de la Democracia along Paseo Colon and Avenida Segunda.

The festival kicks off at 6:00pm with a fireworks display.

In years past, the fireworks were set off in various locations, from rooftops of the highest buildings in the city, providing a spectacular sight from west to east, and north to south.

If you decide to participate in person, remember that it is cold at night and a sweater, better yet a jacket, is a good idea.

The even will also air live on local television.
