    More about Betico Day (from Angelo's Newsletter):
    Dia Di Betico – January 25, 2017 – National Holiday
    You’re invited to celebrate the cultural ceremony on “Dia Betico” at Plaza Libertador Betico Croes on January 25, 2018.
    So what is “Dia di Betico” Exactly?
    It’s the birth date of a local politician who was the driving force behind attaining Aruba’s status aparte (special status) in the Dutch Kingdom.
    This year would have been his 80th birthday.
    Plaza Betico Croes is located close to surfside beach, a stone throw away from Cas di Cultura and Talk Of The Town Hotel.
    The event stats at 6.00 PM with an Aruban culinary fair and local art.
    Here you will find the most traditional and delicious Aruban bites, snacks and beverages.
    There’s also going to be musical entertainment and traditional dance presentations.
    All stores and businesses will be closed during this national holiday
    Local Chinese supermarkets are known to be open, in case you need some groceries or other necessities.

    I wonder if we would experience a different Aruba had Mr. Croes been unsuccessful? In any event, I'm glad he did succeed and would continue to visit regardless.

    Thanks for the info Andrea and Jackie. I didn't realize that Thursday was a holiday and I had planned to go grocery shopping, so now that'll be Wednesday and i'll just have to go to the pool or beach instead.
