    Let the good times roll again! In 2012, the Boquete Jazz and Blues Festival has introduced the first ever New Orleans style street parade in Panama, and it wasd a huge success right from the start. As usual, the 2017 festival will again be kicked-off with a BIG BANG, the one and only New Orleans style street parade in Panama… decorated vehicles, costumes, beads and all! In addition, the parade will feature a Panamanian folkloric roots&traditions group organized by the city of Boquete, with 16 traditional Pollera dancers, 3 "diablos sucios“ with their fantastic masks and costumes, live traditional music, members of the Boquete bomberos and a street band of the Nacional Police department of Chiriqui. A pre-party with face painting starts at 9am on Thursday, Feb. 9 at the BCP communal theater. Parade marching order will be set up in the BCP parking lot. The parade will leave the parking lot at 12pm and will end at 1pm at the Boquete central park to join the BJBF free concerts with three great bands and a student workshop in the park from 1pm until 4pm. Everybody is invited to join the parade! Be there or be square! Get your costumes, beads and stuff ready and let the good times roll! Take a look at the festival website www.boquetejazzandbuesfestival.com to get an idea of the fun we had at previous parades!
