La Feria de la Candelaria Has Arrived
By Sandra Ríos
San Miguel is full of flowers and plants every year at the now-famous Feria de la Candelaria which began this January 30 and will end on February 9. Every year Parque Juárez hosts this fair, which has a tradition of over 50 years. It is visited by both local and tourists to see and buy from the diversity of plants produced and exhibited from different regions of the country. Plants and flowers sell at very good prices. Sanmiguelenses buy their fertilizers, flowers, plants, and pots to beautify their homes and gardens. All of this is accompanied with artistic activities: music and theater in a stage full of scents and colors.
