Fiestas Patronales of Hatillo, P.R.

There is another tradition that is celebrated by each town in Puerto Rico, it is called the Fiestas Patronales, where there is live music and people get together near the town's square to celebrate there local Patron Saint.  In Hatillo P.R. the local Patron Saint is the Virgin Carmen.  In Hatillo P.R. the locals take the Church's statue of the Virgin Carmen in a Religious ceremony, put the statue on the shoulders of locals and parade her around town.  If the ocean/weather is calm they also put her in a fishing boat and take her for ride in the ocean.  This tradition of the Saint Virgin Carmen is done on the first Saturday of the Fiestas Patronales in Hatillo, P.R..

The local Fiestas of Hatillo, P.R. will be held during the 15th until the 24th of July, 2005 in Hatillo, where there will be live music.  On the 17th of July the local "Rumbon de Barrio" will be held at one of my favorite Pubs, "Cafe Costa Azul" in Hatillo near the Plaza, (the town's square).  Here is the program of the music groups that will be there during these fiestas.

Con un dolor profundo en mi corazón, lamento anunciales la muerte de nuestro gran amigo "Nan" Collet de la "Costa Azul" de causas naturales (embolia) en el pueblo de Hatillo, P.R.

Dedicado a “ Nan ” Collet.

Nov. 1945---Agosto. 2005

Amigo mío de muchos años, amigo ejemplar de todos.

Padre, Hermano y Hatillano ejemplar de un gran corazón y devoción.

Un joven muerte te han quitado de nuestros lados sin razón.

¡ Que perdida mas grande han tenido Hatillo del Corazón !


Adios mi amigo de gran corazón.

Te has ido, que triste se siente nuestros corazones.

¡ Pero siempre seras recordado por su gran devoción !
