Aruba May Events: AHATA Recycled Art Competition, May 7-11
The Environmental Committee of the Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association (AHATA) has been hosting this event on One Happy Island for more than a decade. The idea is to raise awareness about how important it is to reduce, re-use and recycle for the sake of our island’s environmental health. Companies, groups, individuals and schools who have registered will be creating amazing works of art from discarded materials that would otherwise be considered trash. The exposition and competition will be held at the Cas di Cultura, Aruba’s local theatre, located at 2 Vondellaan in Oranjestad.
Aruba May Events: Ascension Day, May 10
This is an official holiday in Aruba, which means many businesses will be closed, although you can expect most restaurants to be open. This is the day that Christians (especially Catholics and Anglicans) celebrate the ascension of Jesus to heaven after his resurrection. Whether you’re a religious person or not, it’s a great day to visit the Alto Vista Chapel to enjoy amazing panoramic views, and maybe take a meditative walk through the Peace Labyrinth located behind the chapel.
Aruba May Events: Soul Beach Music Festival, May 23-29
This will be the 18thedition of the Soul Beach Music Festival (SBMF), which has become one of the biggest and best-known music festivals on One Happy Island.
