Aruba Warms Up for a Summer of Cool Events

Aruba is luring visitors all summer long with an array of festive activities. The Watapana Food & Art Festival will feature artwork from local artists, live entertainment, music and food every Wednesday evening from May 8 to September 25, 2002. The festivities will be held in the fairgrounds between the Allegro Resort and Hyatt Regency Resort. The Bon Bini Festival, a year-round folkloric event filled with local arts, crafts, snacks, music and performances, will be held every Tuesday at Fort Zoutman in Oranjestad. Bon Bini means “welcome” in Papiamento, and Aruba hopes to give visitors a warm welcome with these additional cool summer events: June 27- July 2.
