QCOSTARICA – Being far away did not stop 1,000 Ticos (Costa Ricans) living in the United States from celebrating the bicentennial of independence.
This Saturday, September 11 at 9 pm they met on a cruise ship that sailed on the Hudson River, in New York. Although they did not leave the limits of the Big Apple, everyone felt, for a few hours (to 3 am Sunday) that during that time they were back in their beloved Costa Rica.

Each of the participants had to pay US$100 (¢62,800 colones) for entrance that included the food and the dance.
The organizers of the event, Kenny Erickzon and Chispudo, made sure that every detail made the partygoers remember the Tico customs.
Niagara Falls to be lit up with tricolor
Not too far away, Niagara Falls, on the Canadian side of the border with the New York state, this September 15 they will be illuminated with the colors of the Costa Rican flag to celebrate 200 years of independence.
