Carnaval in Panama, Pedasi, Los Santos Province

Panamanian Carnaval is considered the second largest festival in the world…OF ALL FESTIVALS.  And where is the center of the action?

Right here, in the Los Santos province of Panama, particularly Pedasi…my home…where I live.

Carnaval is celebrated throughout the country of Panama but the festivities in this part of the country are especially popular because of the sheer luxury, magnitude and the element of seriousness and hard work the people put into preparing for it.

For the next five days all sorts of parades, parties, events and concerts will be happening all over the Azuero Peninsula.  I’ll be doing my best to document the festivities and bring you all the photos and information your hearts can handle.

I’m not a spring chicken anymore and this is widely considered a non-stop party for the next five days.

Here’s hoping this girl survives!
