New Lights on the Bridge and Christmas Around the Rio

New Permanent Lighting on the Rio Dulce Bridge
January 5, 2018
by Jody Aston, Editor and Publisher

Christmas was celebrated with much fanfare all around the Rio Dulce this year. Once again, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Clause rode their sleigh downriver to spread a little Christmas magic to hundreds of children at Casa Guatemala Children's Home. Heather Graham, Executive Director, organized the mindboggling logistics for the festivities, and expressed gratitude to the Rio Dulce cruising community for their support, both monetarily and in donations of presents.

Although the Rio Dulce bridge looked festive, the bright colorful lights were not placed there for the holidays, but are actually a delightful permanent fixture, alternating colors every few minutes. Returning boaters were pleased and surprised by the nightly light show.
