“We are very satisfied because in this third year, this event has already crossed the boundaries of the department, as well as outside the country. This Sabalito Fest would not have been possible without everyone’s support who support us from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, in addition to each of the officials of the Regional Government of Villa Montes,” Sánchez thanked.

Although the figures are still preliminary, It is estimated that about 6 thousand people attended to the event on the first day (Saturday). The statistics I could easily be surpassed this Sunday, during the closing day of the event. An official report from the organizers is awaited.
