In the typical summer heat, this Sunday, January 20 at the Party Zone in Amador, the flag of "Carnival of the City, Discovery 2013" was hoisted.

The activity that took place on the Amador Causeway was graced with the presence of the queen Virginia Hernández and her princesses Nabil González and Rocío Lezcano.

The ceremony was not without its murga, or street musicians, as well as musical artists on stage like Los Rabanes, Aldo Ranks and Samy and Sandra Sandoval.

This year, Carnival of the City will take place as part of the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Pacific Ocean, achieved by Vasco Núñez de Balboa after a journey through the province of Darién in 1513.

The Panama Tourism Authority maintains the expectation of exceeding the number of visitors from 2012, which were 21,500.
