Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Aug 12 - 14)

It's officially the "Feast of the Assumption" and we're dedicating this weekend guide to spiritual and religious activities happening around the city. Kidding! Though if you keep an eye out you may spot an interesting ceremony or ritual on Monday. For those of you looking for regular things to do in Santiago this weekend, there's quite a bit going on- from a gourmet food festival running the entire weekend, to an awesome concert on Sunday from our friends at Fonda Permanente, to the World Press Photo exhibit, DJ parties, Los Tetas performing at a couple of spots, even Pokemon meetups.

Remember every week we'll post our picks for the weekend and please check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!
