The Bomberos' Torchlight Parade

Tuesday November 27, after dark


up Via España from the banking district, then down Avenida Central to Plaza Cinco de Mayo


This year Panama mourns the deaths of two bomberos in Colon, and the crippling injuries to several of their colleagues in the same accident --- but Plaza Cinco de Mayo is itself named in honor of firefighters killed in an explosion when a fires spread to a fireworks factory long ago. It's always a dangerous job, calling for Valor, Abnegation and Integrity, which are the watchwords of Panama's Cuerpo de Bomberos.

The Torchlight Parade is held every year in late November in honor of the Firefighter Corps' foundation on November 28, 1885.
