Everything is ready for the celebration of the traditional Patron Saint Festival in honor of Our Lady of Carmen, which will be held from Wednesday, July 12, to Sunday, July 15 in the Juan Evangelista Rivera public square in Morovis, Mayor Carmen Maldonado González announced this week.

The events will feature rides of all kinds and kiosks with traditional food, drinks and sweets, as well as stalls of authentic Puerto Rican crafts.

“On Wednesday the 12th, we start with the Children’s Day events, with the rides at $3 from 6 p.m. onwards,” the mayor said in a press release. “On Thursday we start at 7 p.m. with the Urbanez Band, followed by Rumba Caliente and ending the night in a big way with the Puerto Rico Gana event, directed by DJ Alex.”

On Friday, the musical events also begin at 7 p.m. with Grupo SI C Logra, followed by Frankie Ruiz Jr. and His Orchestra, and ending with one of the most in-demand bands, Grupomanía, which since its debut in 1993 has filled the squares throughout Puerto Rico and abroad with joy. On Saturday, Kitín Rosario and His Orchestra are in charge of opening the night’s entertainment at 7 p.m., followed by Orquesta Camínalo, in a tribute to Gilberto Santa Rosa, and ending the night with Oscarito El Más Loco and His Orchestra.

Sunday, the final day of festivities, begins at 3 p.m. with the Conjunto Típico Moroveño, followed by Sonora Boricua at 5:30 p.m. At 7 p.m. in the midway area, the Frozen Show for children is to be presented. In the public square, the Municipal Band of Morovis and Rika Swing will take the stage, followed by closing act Domingo Quiñones and His Orchestra.

“We have worked on these holidays with great love and detail for the enjoyment of all resident Moroveños, Moroveños who live elsewhere and visitors from all over Puerto Rico,” Maldonado González said. “We are particularly grateful to the Liberty company and Cooperativa Moroveña for their valuable contributions, as well as to the businesses and professionals who generously contribute to these festivities.”
