PINAR DEL RÍO.– With the added motivation of being selected to host the national July 26 celebration, residents of Pinar del Río are ready to enjoy the summer.

The varied program of activities available to families in the province's 11 municipalities ranges from a performance by the celebrated children's theater company La Colmenita and one by Paulo FG's dance band, to carnivals and traditional outings to the beach.

Regla María Ferrer, vice president of the provincial administrative council, told Granma that hosting activities will be a new group of facilities, inaugurated over the last several months in honor of the 150th anniversary of the city of Pinar del Río, including, for example the technological recreation center Fruti-Club.
