Aruba Aloe once again welcomes members of the local community to its annual Flag & Anthem Day celebration—Aruba Nos Orguyo—at the Aruba Aloe Factory, Museum, and Store on March 18, 2019. From 9 am to 5 pm, attendees can enjoy a wide range of activities, live music by local bands, local food & beverages, and 3 exciting in-store promotions.
Jessica Posner, marketing manager for Aruba Aloe, explains, “Each year, we try to add new, fun activities that remind people how significant Aloe cultivation has been, and still is, in defining Aruba’s unique identity.” General activities will include planting your own Aloe and decorating your planter under the guidance of a local artist, printing your own tee shirt, a rally, photo booths, and free Factory & Museum Tours, which highlight the history of Aloe cultivation on Aruba and unveil the entire manufacturing process, from the hand-cutting of the Aloe leaves to the packaging of the final products. Kids can enjoy local games, a Dino Jump, a fun train ride around the Aloe field, face & hand painting, Little Tikes Play Toys for toddlers, and creating their own Aloe slime.
Several local bands will ensure a festive atmosphere by providing live music throughout the day, including Sodo y Cuero (9:30 – 11:30 am), Rincon Boys (12 – 2 pm), and D’licious (2:30 – 4:30 pm). While guests enjoy the music of these talented musicians, they can partake in fresh Aloe smoothies; typical local dishes, snacks, sweets, cakes, and drinks; and special snacks and sweets for kids.
As part of the celebration, Aruba Aloe will launch 3 special promotions in its Hato store. First, all shoppers will be eligible to win prizes (including a cruise for 2); second, all purchases made before 11 am will be accompanied by a free Aruba Aloe shopping bag; and third, all prices, normally in dollars, will be in Aruban florins. Posner adds, “Our dollars-to-florins promotion is always a huge hit, and we’re extremely proud to give locals the opportunity to really stock up on all their favorite Aruba Aloe products, which have so definitively become Aruba's pride.”
