Despite Rain, Justas in Orlando 2018 Returns to Orlando to Continue Boricua Tradition

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Justas in Orlando 2018 came to Central Florida May 5 and 6 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. This is a Boricua tradition where athletes from universities, artists, and others gather in the island of Puerto Rico, and Oby Entertainment has brought part of that tradition to Orlando. They bring artists, artisans, Puerto Rican food kiosks and more, thanks to all the sponsors.

On May 5, 2018 this big event took place for the second time and was scheduled as a two-day event. Despite the rain, everything went as planned. More and more attendees filled the place as night fell. There weren’t only Boricuas in there, but a lot of Hispanic nationalities, since it is a family event and open to the public.

On stage were Pleneros Son De Cristos, Code 787, Los D PR, Elysani, the characters Cascarita and Boris from wapa America PR, Skapulario, Algarete, Lasecta Allstar, and others, with sounds by DJ King Arthur, DJ Consul and Nazario.

The kid’s VIP area featured Santin y sus titeres shows, the clown Pimpolin, Doña Yuyita and an entertainment area with camels, bounce houses and more.

The food and drink kiosks from P.R. offered alcapurrias, bacalaitos and pinchos. There were tents with crafts and handcrafts like accessories with the P.R. flag, Wasy P.R. with their crafts of accessories done by hand, among others. There were also companies promoting themselves such as lawyers, grocery shop owners and communications companies.

On May 6, the activity had to be postponed for safety because of the rainfall. The place was full of water, and some of the kiosks were damaged. The attendees and the organizer want to experience that second day of events, so it will come again. El Desquite Justas in Orlando happens June 24, 2018 at the Fairgrounds.

On stage will be: Jowell y Randy, the band Algarete, the characters Cascarita and Boris from wapa America PR, Rabanes, Los Bomby de la Plen, Figu, Warionex, and more artists to come.

Tickets and parking are $10.00 each, and kids under 12 get in free.

 

Justas: 85 Years of Sports Tradition in P.R.

The Justas is like a ritual step for our university life. We couldn’t graduate if we didn’t assist at least one. This almost unbreakable tradition has lasted a little over eight decades from generation to generation.

The Justas have become an event that singers and a lot of businesses use to promote their products, and primary radio stations in the island of Puerto Rico bring their own stage.
