The Cultural Conductors are chugging right along and they held their first major event on my birthday: Estación Abierta.
Thanks to all of the people who donated to my Peace Corps partnership grant, my fellow Peace Corps volunteers who came to help out, community groups who collaborated, and the hardwork of the Conductors, the event was a major success.
We had 150 people move through the train station during the event with 106 people present at one time during our peak hour. We had musical acts, mimes, a live Zumba demonstration, my Vamos Chicas Vamos girls presented their Rainbow Fish play, rock painting, handicrafts for sale, a bounce house, photo displays, a frisbee workshop and more!
People who missed our first edition are already pleading that we do it again. So we said, okay, we’ll do it again on June 8th.
