PARADERA — Major traffic intersections are becoming focal points for seasonal celebrations as Aruba prepares for end of the year celebrations. The various rotundas around the islands may be covered with white pebbles to simulate snow, but the holiday cheer is just as much in force.
As Part of the “Bo Bario Project” endorsed by the government, Aruba’s Minister of Tourism, Transport and Culture, Otmar Oduber welcomed the community at the inauguration. The Minister opened the night by thanking Bucuti & Tara Resorts and ATA (Aruba Tourism Authority) who adopted this roundabout and turned it into a spectacular view.
As minister of Culture, Oduber was happy to see that the decoration theme was of our culture and folklore. Centro Sonrisa, Scol Duna Un Man, Colegio Pastoor Kraanwinkel, Scol Preparatorio Nos Paraiso, Sint Jan Kleuterschool and Emma School also contributed by decorating the seven Christmas trees placed around the decorated historic monuments.
