    Oh I’m so sorry I’ll have to miss this festival as I live in Antigua and did not have enough notice to make the necessary arrangements. Will this event be broadcast on the internet?

  2. alfredo Says:

    EyeTour won’t be broadcasting from the event but we will bring you an updated post with results, photos, and possibly some video footage as well. We are beginning to cover events for the EyeTour.com blog and as we make progress and add more posts, we’ll try to write about up-coming events well in advance. Please check out http://www.claridadpuertorico.com/ and http://festivaldeclaridad.com/ for more information about this event – those sites might be able to point you in the direction of a broadcast.

    Thanks for writing!
