On Saturday and Sunday April 8 and 9 there is again a bazaar planned in the park of the flowers in Sosúa.
The park of the flowers (parque las flores) is located next to the Sosúa Bay Casino.
Again this year there will be many covered stalls selling all kinds of merchandise like trinkets, clothing, food and drink.
Semana Santa Bazaar
On the elevated plaza in the park demonstrations will take place from different groups practicing in Casa de Arte.
The visitors to the bazaar can enjoy the Sosúa choir under the direction of Manuel Molina and a dressage demonstration by the 'Singing Horse Foundation' from El Choco among others.
The string orchestra will also do a performance.
Furthermore, a lottery will be held.
This sympathetic initiative deserves more attention and appreciation and we hope that this year there will be more people visiting the bazaar with some sunny weather.

Recently 29 fishermen, who have their accommodation at the mouth of the river Sosúa, went to the capital of Santo Domingo.
They were invited by the Ministry of Marine and Environment to attend a course about responsible environmental management of fishing.
Fish stocks along the coasts of the Dominican Republic dramatically declined in recent years caused by pollution of the ocean and overfishing.
The coral has also been severely damaged by pollution, global warming and overfishing.
In the course, the fishermen were taught what the impact of these threats to fish stocks mean.
But also that it is a threat to the income of fishermen because they will have to go further and further on to the ocean with their small boats to catch enough fish.
Course environmental management
The course showed them solutions and tools to maintain their jobs with sustainable fisheries.
