Can anyone tell me if the Bon Bini Festival at Fort Zoutman on Tuesday nights is worth the trip? Is there an entrance fee? Is it something for the whole family to see? Will it still be running in October 2011?
this is all i have been able to find.
and i have heard mixed reviews.
there is a price but i do not know it.
ABOUT BON BINI FESTIVAL
Visit Fort Zoutman, the oldest building on the island, located in Oranjestad, and enjoy our famous Bon Bini Festival, a weekly local folkloric music and dance festival where you can catch the flavor of the island, its people, music, cuisine and hospitality.
"Bon bini" means "Welcome" in Papiamento, and that is the perfect word to describe the enthusiastic environment of this festival. The festival takes place every Tuesday from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
I just got back from Aruba last Sunday, my first trip. Totally loved it. Went to the Bon bini Festival. I enjoyed it. The entrance fee was $3. The local artistes were very entertaining; local food was good; art and craft was also good. Glad I went. To me a must go at least once if you're in Aruba.
