It’s time to take a fresh look at Merida’s public Sunday programming, according to the chairman of Merida’s Historic Center board, Raymundo Vargas Leon.
Vargas Leon expressed the need to review the Merida en Domingo program, which attracts visitors to parks every week, to enrich its content. Greater emphasis on cultural programming and recreation should enhance what is now mainly arts, crafts and food kiosks in the city’s parks. The programming should extend to other traditional neighborhoods such as Santa Ana and Santiago, he added.
Although the board’s focus is on restoration of the marketplace, once that is concluded, the board has agreed to address improving the Merida en Domingo program.
