It's been several years since we've gone into San Ramon to watch the Desfile de Faroles (lantern parade). This event has grown in the past few years! It was a surprise to have entertainment before the parade began.
The best part of the parade for me was getting to share this cultural experience with my son. He's visited Costa Rica a number of times but this is his first Independence Day in the country. I think he was surprised by the size of the crowd as well.
