Most of these patriotic holidays are celebrated with parades during the day. In Boquete Nov 3 and 4 are local parades. Nov 28 is traditionally the big parade with attendees from around the country.
If you are a visitor, take a camera, take an umbrella and be ready for 1950’s red, white and blue with the police and fire department filling in for the military component. Every town, hamlet and city in Panama will get into this party.
In the evenings there will be discos, music and if there is not enough in Boquete you can always go to Dolega or David for more partying.
