Fiestas de Palmares is celebrated on the first two weeks of January in Palmares de Alajuela. Concerts with music, rodeos (even bullfighting) and firework displays are held. There is also a fairground and sporting competitions. I for one go with friends just to see the horses and the rodeo. Somehow, this is like a continuation of the holiday season. So I guess, it extends the festive air in that area of Costa Rica. It can be an exhausting affair. The lantern parade and the Palmarin Soccer Cup (which we weren’t able to watch unfortunately) put you out of the holiday spirit with a bang.
