But that's not all. It has been announced that on Saturday, starting at midnight and lasting for four hours, a Carnival-like parade will wind through the heart of Chitré, with plenty of water to douse the parade-goers. Plus, there will be two other concert stages and mobile units with well-known DJs from the capital and Chitré.
During these two days, thousands of Panamanians and foreigners will be able to enjoy some 9 hours of shows by national artists, all in the center of the city of Chitré and completely free of cost.
The parade on Saturday, September 8 will begin at 3pm and go through the streets of the capital of Herrera. The spirit of the event is to show a reflection of the major native demonstrations from across the nation, like the renowned conga dancing groups, satyrical masked actors, Congo devils, runaway slave dances, folkloric ox-drawn carts, regional festival queens and the carnival queen of the capital, just to mention a few of the participants...
When the parade wraps up, at 9 pm we will have another concert stage with entertainment provided by the Panamanian orchestra La K-Shamba, the romantic urban beats of Japanese and, as we mentioned, the country's most famous siblings, Samy and Sandra Sandoval. We are sure that this party came to stay in this beautiful province.
The province of Herrera and its major city of Chitré was chosen not just for its easy connectivity to other parts of the country. Its hotel capacity and the natural wonders it offers will let thousands of national and international tourists not only completely enjoy the FESTIVAL OF ALL FESTIVALS, but also allow them to rediscover the truth of that popular saying, "No one is a stranger in Chitré."
