Guayafest 2014: Bugs and More Bugs

This, the 15th Annual Reunion de Amigos del Volkswagen, appeared to attract about the same number of vehicles, but far fewer people. The exhibit began to wind down late afternoon, but the streets were still filled with cars and there was no traffic flowing in either direction during the event.

Avenida del Sol Nuevo (main street) was blocked off and patrolled near the entrance to town and both lanes were closed to traffic.

Parking was definitely at a premium in and around the entire plaza…
