The Fiestas held in Nosara last Saturday March 23 to help raise money for Los Arenales asphalt preparations work collected almost $6000 out of the $28000 that the community need.
Member of Los Arenales Committee, Eduardo Cespedes, report that money collected from the horse parade was 1.690.000 colones ($3380), from the entertainment activities 1.150.000 colones ($2300) and from the donations a 115.000 ($230) plus goods donated to give away at the activities, making a total of 2 955 000 colones ($5910)
Yet, in order to build curbs and gutters for channeling rain water along the 2.7 kilometers that will be asphalt by the government, they need $28.000.
Cespedes confirmed that they are hoping to organize more activities like this, such as a horse parade for the up coming April fiestas in Nosara. He estimates that asphalts works in Los Arenales could start two weeks after Easter
