    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Over a million people are expected to attend the 29th edition of the Palmares fiestas, which starts today, Wednesday, January 14 and will bring 12 days of celebration and fun until January 26.

    According to spokeswoman Palmareña Civic Association , Diana Vargas, the number of visitors is estimated based on predictions that about 100,000 people will go to the festival every day.

    Among the highlights for this year are the popular bullfights with 8 rounds scheduled, the traditional carnival, festival of humor, ranchero festival, sporting events and two free international concerts.

    As for safety, Vargas explained that the Association hired private security for the fairgrounds and 16 surveillance cameras to monitor areas around the fairgrounds.

    Officially the festivities will begin tonight with the official fairground lighting ceremony. This will also launch the traditional parade of lanterns and masquerades at 6 pm.

    The other events that are expected to draw the greatest numbers of visitors is the concert next Sunday, January 18th, for the band Culture Prophetic, the carnival on January 23 and the Farruko concert on January 25.
