This week Salinas is celebrating its birthday. On Saturday evening we watched a parade from our balcony which was the kick off to this week-long event. Today we walked to the municipal building located across from the Catholic church. Our dear friend Monica had five of her paintings on display along with other artists from the area.
On our walk back we took these pictures of the festivities for the children on the beach.
There were booths set up selling Christmas items, a performance with actors, art work for sale. Santa, snowmen and Christmas trees were walking around entertaining the kids.
This evening they have a kiddy inflatable slide set up near the stage and live music.
