Feria Internacional de David

The International Fair of David fida_58

I was lucky enough to get back from the US in time to go to the fair not once, but twice! My friend and neighbor had been talking about it for months and was very excited to take me. There was so much to see that it was a while before I remembered that I had a camera in my purse and a mission to take some photos! When Joel returned we had enough time to go again on Sunday night, so the rest of the photos are from that evening.

The fair is a big event here with participants coming from all over Central and South America, and even North America and Europe  There are many vendors and artisans, animals, livestock, farm equipment, furniture, plants, food, businesses, cars, and an amusement park area. According to the website 300,000 people visit this fair every year.

I’m glad I was able to go to the fair! It was a fun experience and there was a lot to see. Funny though, I don’t remember seeing anyone else that I would recognize as another gringo. Joel and I did notice tons of fathers carrying their babies and small children. He may have a post in the works on that subject, dads and their kids in Panama.

I’d definitely go again next year. I’ll probably have an agenda of things I want to see and buy and experience! For now though, I need to organize my life so I’ll have time to go  enjoy my new hammock.

    Meat on a stick…a staple at every Panameño event. Eric always loves to go the the goings on in the burg for the food while I enjoy the people watching!
