*NEW DATE* FIESTA HUASA | OCTOBER 21, 2017


Join us at our annual Fiesta Huasa event Saturday, October 21*, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Nido baseball field.

Fiesta Huasa is a tradition that has been part of our community for over 25 years, when we come together to celebrate Chilean culture. It is a fun day for the entire family and a great opportunity to experience the festivities of September in Chile. The activities include rodeo events, displays of horsemanship skills, special presentations by folkloric dance and music groups, games for children, and traditional Chilean food. All funds raised during the event go to support the projects of the Nido de Aguilas Sindicato N°1 de Trabajadores.

Tickets for Fiesta Huasa will be on sale at school October 16-20 in front of the Administration building from 2:00-3:30pm, and are available now online. Tickets are $2.500 in advance, or $3.000 at the door (free for children under 5). This event is open to the public—invite your friends!

*This event was rescheduled to October 21st.
