Club Libertad's president, Fernando Burmester Landuaro, stated: "We expect this celebration to be received favorably, especially by all the participants. The organization that goes into the event is impressive and it demonstrates the uniqueness of Marinera Norteña and the contest organized by Libertad Club due to the quantity and quality of the couple who participate.
