      The Boquete Feria de Las Flores y del Café   01/12/2017

      The Boquete Feria de Las Flores y del Café begins Thursday, January 12th and runs until Sunday, January 22nd. For those who have not yet seen -- and experienced -- this magnificent fair, you are in for a treat, and some inconveniences. Most importantly, you must see all of the flowers and the tiendas at and around the Fair Grounds here in Boquete.  During these eleven days you also need to be extremely careful, especially while driving and in planning your activities. In recent years there have been well in excess of 100,000 visitors to Boquete. Last year that number was closer to 200,000, and some predictions for 2017's Fair are closer to 300,000 people coming to our area to see the Fair. Traffic congestion will be the norm. Getting seats in restaurants will be difficult at times. Parking spaces will essentially be nonexistent. Buying groceries may be difficult and time consuming. Busses will be parked on the side streets, making driving difficult. There will be lots (as in LOTS) of people walking, standing around the bridge and the Feria and the many tiendas (small shops and stands [kiosks]) while taking pictures, talking, viewing the scenery, etc. Please be extremely attentive while driving, and drive slowly. Some streets will be blocked and require passes to use them. Other streets will simply be blocked based on congestion. Please be careful of your personal items, such as purses and wallets. Having so many people in one area creates a prime target for pickpockets and other maliantes to do their thing. To repeat, most importantly, you must see all of the flowers and the tiendas at and around the Fair Grounds here in Boquete.  Three closing thoughts. First: enjoy. Second: be safe. Third: you might wish to post your pictures, comments, reviews, etc., here on CL (start a topic or reply to an existing topic in http://www.chiriqui.life/forum/118-boquete-feria-de-las-flores-y-del-café/).   To provide general feedback or ask for help regarding Chiriqui.Life, please leave a posting in Problems, Feedback and Suggestions or email support@chiriqui.life or private message to @Admin_01.

  1. Thank you so much. We have a family that we buy school supplies for and I was wondering when I should start gathering the supplies.
  2. Does anyone know when the public school classes here begin for the next term?
  3. YiA YOGA is located in the Los Establos Plaza in Boquete. The recipients of the donations from the classes are two local food charities, San Juan Bautista Catholic Church Food Bank and Buenos Vecinos de Bouquets.
  4. I am posting this for my neighbor. The wheelchair is new and has never been used. She is asking $300 for it. She doesn't speak English so I am helping her with the sale. For more information you can contact me by email: trishchristofferson@yahoo.com
  5. Way back in 1989, Brian Christofferson helped his wife, Trish, raise three kids. At night, he flew airmail from Kalispell, Montana, most of the way across the state to Billings. After unloading and reloading, he made it back home before dawn on most days. Nowadays, Brian and Trish live in Panama during those harsh Montana winters and Brian writes of his adventures of long ago. His latest eBook, Through the Lookie Hole, is available for free on Amazon until midnight tonight.
  6. This attractive wrought iron set with a wood table top would be perfect for the patio or kitchen. Asking price is $250. For inquiries email: trishchristofferson@yahoo.com
