Grito de La Villa de Los Santos Parade

We went to another parade yesterday (Nov 10th) and I think it was even more fun than the other one we saw. This one had elaborate carts and many people in traditional Panamanian dress. I especially loved all the children who participated. This holiday celebrates the shout that happened in 1821 in Los Santos which was the beginning of the efforts to gain independence from Spain.

I also put together a video of some of the scenes if you want to get a real feel for what it was like!
