Earthship Pitaya Festival

The second annual Earthship Pitaya Festival is happening this Saturday, January 30 in the community of El Carizal.  This event was a lot of fun last year and promises to be equally wonderful again this year.  With a great lineup of music, food, yoga and cock-fighting, this is a unique festival that pulls together ex-pats and locals in a fun-filled day.
The festival’s mission is to bring a community of like minded individuals together to celebrate diversity, sustainability, music, local food, yoga and Nicaraguan culture in the best form possible; A music festival in the heart of the community of El Carizal, Nicaragua.
There will be shuttle transportation from town (location to be announced) to the event site.  Entrance fee is on a “pay what you can” basis. (at least it was last year).  This is a full day event and all proceeds (should there be any) will go to community development projects in El Carizal…. so this isn’t the time to be tight with your money.  Think what something like this would cost at home and then be generous and enjoy a great day!
