This Saturday, Dec. 2, the traditional Christmas lighting will be held in the José Francisco Náter public square in Vega Baja, with activities for the whole family, Mayor Marcos Cruz Molina announced on Tuesday.
The event begins at 6 p.m. with the music of Algareplena.
“We all go to the Plaza de Vega Baja to bring the flavor of our music with a carnival rhythm and urban sounds without departing from the essence of the plena that distinguishes us,” said Jonuel García Olivo, director of Algareplena. “We are sure that we are going to turn on the party.”
Barreto El Show, recognized for the famous composition “Agua de Coco,” will perform next at 7:30 p.m. His first big concert this year took place at the Performing Arts Center in Caguas.
Barreto is followed by the production “Puerto Rico Gana,” the game show that since 2019 has been presented on Telemundo with more than 32,000 hours of entertainment, celebrating its fourth anniversary on Puerto Rican television.
Plaza Náter will also see a wide variety of kiosks selling traditional Christmas food and drinks, as well as stalls selling authentic Puerto Rican handicrafts.
“Our artisans from Vega Baja have worked on many alternatives for this event, where visitors will have the opportunity to purchase their Christmas gifts with unique pieces of great design, color and quality,” Cruz Molina said.
