More than 200 couples will get married in a massive wedding in Nicaragua on the 14th, when Valentine’s Day is celebrated, its organizers reported Wednesday.
The couples will sign their nuptials before dozens of judges, in a massive ceremony that has been celebrated for almost 20 years.
This year the weddings will take place in the Plaza de la Revolución, located in the old center of Managua, in the north of the city, reported the radio station Nueva Radio Ya, with an official profile, which organizes the event.
Two days before the massive wedding, the couples and their godparents will meet at a Managua convention center to be sworn in, according to organizers.
The celebration usually attracts the attention of couples from popular social strata, who attend the wedding with their relatives and witnesses.
More than 9,600 couples have married in the 19 years of mass weddings in Nicaragua.
On average, each of these massive weddings held on Valentine’s Day in Nicaragua has had 505 marriages, according to data from the organizers.
The mass wedding has become an annual tradition for the radio station that organizes it. The Government of Nicaragua usually gives its officials rest on account of vacations this February 14, to “enjoy a great deal” on Valentine’s Day.
