Festivals in February 2013

We'll be in CR from 6-25 Feb. I have found references on the web to various festivals but there are no or conflicting dates for this year. Can anyone confirm "Fiesta de los Diablitos" in Rey Curre, "The Mule Festival" in Parrita, and the "Festival of the Sun" wherever.

I just got back from Parrita and apparently the Festival de las Mulas is this coming weekend Jan 27, 28, 29 and 30 and the following weekend as well with the highlight being Sunday Feb 3 which is the last day. I hear it's great fun, however I believe you will miss it if you are not arriving till the 6th. The were starting to set it up at the fairgrounds this past weekend when we were there.
