OX parade in Costa Rica
Every year many farmers from around San Ramon de Alajuela in Costa Rica come to downtown San Ramon to participate in the traditional parade of “Carretas” or carriages. These are not typical carriages. These meticulously decorated ox drawn carriages take a long time to complete due to their complex designs and methods. Farmers not only show off their carriages but also their best oxes.
Some of our volunteers in Costa Rica participated in this colorful parade and were able to take even ride the carriages!
