Father’s Day at San Rafael - Honduras

Father’s Day in Honduras is celebrated on March 19; so on Thursday the community of San Rafael hosted a Father’s Day celebration! Fathers from the communities of San Rafael and Barbasco came to enjoy the festivities. Numerous poems were read, 3 skits were preformed, and the 9th grade colegio students sang a beautiful song.

Then, the fathers got to show off their piñata hitting skills! Some of them had very unusual techniques that made everyone laugh, but finally the piñata broke and they all raced to get the candy. The afternoon ended with cake followed by a quick football game between the dads and the colegio boys. It was a great party and way to thank the fathers. Happy Father’s Day!
