Carnival Queen of Panama

Carnival Queen of Panama

No one gets comes in the way of Panama’s carnival celebrations. This is a nationwide party and weeklong party. Panama City turns abandon and all businesses closes; music tends to be everywhere and at times it sounds like the largest speaker systems collection of the world which comes to blast reggae and pop music.

As with several festivals, the carnival roots from a Christian tradition and happens for forty days before the holy week of the Christians. Carnival meaning is ‘feast of the flesh’ and it is observed before the abstention ordered by Christian church. No one goes to work, streets tend to be filled with costumes, floats, masks, water, music, confetti and parades.

All these started with Carnival Queen’s selection and her attendants who prevail over the daily parades as well as the festival’s official activities. People states to shake their legs in the roads and water trucks spray water to the cheerful crowd so the party did not get disturbed by the heat of the sunlight. To be very frank, water appears to be a huge part of this festival. There are several party goers who come with squirt guns and water balloons. It appears to be one of the largest water fight in the world.

Different provinces of the nation have different celebration style. Each year they attempt to offer various attractions to the people. Azuero peninsula’s Las Tablas town is one of the most sought after places for partying. It has also been observed that many people tend to opt for an extra weekend during this time.
