On June 24th the Fiesta de San Juan Bautista throws Chitre into a frenzy. Complete with bullfights, cockfights and other curiosities, it’s a rowdy affair, but don’t worry: most of the animals are just teased and not injured. Most, we say.
Festival del Mantino Ocueno is held in the third week of August in Ocu. It is one of Panama’s best folkloric events. It’s a three day festival that aims to protect the traditional culture of Herrera by presenting dances and traditional costumes from folkloric groups of the region.
