from La Pampas
FFD brings together people from all over the country, which sometimes means traveling miles to get there.
Dora Ester Bravo has moved from Winifreda, a town in the Pampa, to Paraná with no hesitation in every edition over the past nine years.
“I had the chance to meet Zulema at Grandpa in 2009 and she told me about the Costume Party at the time. Then I decided to join this venture,” Bravo said.
Bravo said that with the Albiceleste turban and the most striking accessory of his team, the colorful caddy, Bravo prepared his clothes.
“I love your costume and do everything. I use recycled materials at every opportunity and I make it with my own hands.” He predicted that the costume he will use tomorrow will be very fun and will be closely related to the World Cup.
“I am passionate about football and on my cape I will put 32 flags of 32 countries that I made myself. This is a golden cloak and of course I will accompany it in combination with other clothes,” said the pampas.
Challenges for retirees
It poses a challenge for a significant number of participants, both in terms of transportation, clothing, meals and accommodation at other times. However, it is an even greater complication in the elderly.
In this sense, due to the great effort for Bravo to attend the festival, he made a proposal for the organizers to consider in subsequent editions.
“Next year, I would like the organization to stipulate a reward, even for the ticket, because it’s very difficult for us adults who have minimal retirement and make a lot of sacrifices like going through traffic lights while at a red light. performances of bands and items”.
