Parada de Próspero Año Nuevo

By BobbyRica | January 1, 2009

The holiday cheer continues in Panama with a festive green Christmas! All of Panama celebrates the New Year with pomp and glamor. The fun-filled evening never fails to cheer people up.

In the small town of Las Tablas, New Year’s Eve is celebrated with a carnival and beauty pageant. Two carnival queens, namely that of Calle Arriba and Calle Abajo — compete for bragging rights and a cash prize for the most beautiful (and oftentimes decadent) float. They go around the main thoroughfare to add that distinct fiesta flavor to the holidays before they end the proceedings with singing and dancing at a New Year’s program in the town center.

Celebrate with us as we usher in the New Year! May your lives be kissed with peace and prosperity this 2009.
