The Week Holds a Variety of Unique Events for Bonaire’s Visitors
There’s no lack of fun and interesting things to do this week on Bonaire. Here’s a rundown on just some of the unique events being held this week on the island.
Bon Bida Spa & Gym is offering a free children’s sport clinic this Wednesday from either 2:30 to 3:30 PM or 4:00 to 5:00 PM. This clinic will provide a fun and safe atmosphere where kids can learn how to be fit and strong from a young age onward, while parents can also enjoy a presentation about the importance of fitness for kids and how the gym’s Fitkids Program works. All children aged 7 through 11 are welcome to join in, and those who are on island for a longer period can sign up for the weekly clinic and get the first month free. Sports clothing is necessary for participation. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-7224.
For those who know the basics of salsa dancing, but always wanted to improve, this week on Bonaire is the perfect opportunity. Geared to those who already know the basics, the 2012 edition of the Salsa Flash Course is targeted for the intermediate level and will spice up your salsa dancing while on Bonaire. The course will be three hours of classes over three days (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), and will end with a Latin dance party at Tropical Rancho. Those interested in attending need to be at Sense Restaurant on Thursday and Friday from 7:00 to 8:00 PM, and then Saturday the course will complete at Tropical Rancho from 8:00 to 9:00 PM, with the party beginning directly afterward and going until the wee hours (3:00 AM). Cost per participant is $30.00 for all three classes, and the party is free. For more information or to sign up, telephone 795-0496 or 785-0027.
On Friday, March 30th, Club Roomer will hold their next fundraiser, the proceeds of which all go to help Bonaire’s youth enjoy a Kids’ Easter Playday, when over 400 children, aged 4-12, will have a day of games, singing, and playing, with the cooperation and supervision of Jong Bonaire volunteers. To help out with this laudable effort, simply spend Friday evening at the Jazzy Happy Hour at Hotel Roomer, when Andreina and Friends will serenade those attending. There is no cover charge, and dinner specials are only $10.00 per person, and include pasta, Stamppot, or fried rice entrees. The evening begins at 7:00 PM.
On Saturday, March 3, start your day early at the Go Green Monthly Farmers’ Market. Held from 8:00 AM through 12:00 Noon, the market is at Pakus di Pruga, at Kaya Lib. Simon Blv. #17. For additional information, telephone 717-2222.
Then, continue the day in Rincon, as the Women’s Club RinFa invites all to the First Rincon International Food Festival from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM. The event will take place at the Plaza Commers in Rincon, and will feature local and international cuisine, music, dance, poetry, and much more. All are invited to sample Rincon’s unique heritage and culture.
And finally end the weekend on Sunday, April 1st by stopping by the 34th Annual Kite-Flying Contest in Kralendijk. The contest will begin at 9:00 AM in the morning, and there will be music and stands selling food and sweets, and drinks will be available for purchase as well. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get great images of kids having the time of their lives, as sometimes their kites are bigger than they are!
No matter which event you choose, be sure to enjoy all that Bonaire has to offer! (Source: Bonaire Insider Reporter)
