PUNTARENA participates in the "Convite Banilejo 2016"
Thirteen years have passed since a group of Banilejos decided to organize a meeting to promote culture, consolidate ties of friendship and above all, celebrate pride in the land that saw them born.
This is how the "Convite Banilejo" has become an endearing tradition of which Puntarena had the honor of participating, as a sign of our deep commitment to be part of the tourism and integral development of the area.
The atmosphere in which the meeting took place was as warm as the reception of the banilejos that live in the country and those who return from abroad every year to enjoy the activity, to whom we had the opportunity to present PUNTARENA and invite them to be part of our community.
The thirteenth edition of the "Convite Banilejo" 2016 was held in the Mirador Sur park and has been organized since 2003 by the Banileja Alliance in Santo Domingo that presides don Fabio R. Herrera.
The funds raised will go to the Villa David School and the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra.
The celebration, which was supported by the Perelló Cultural Center, offered all kinds of fun to attendees, from the participation of the music band and the municipal folk ballet, to the tasting of the typical banilejos sweets.
