Panamanian Independence Day Parade in Downtown LA
I just looked out my window about an hour ago because I thought I heard a marching band. Sure enough, there’s a parade going on. They must not have promoted it very well in the neighborhood, because I haven’t seen any posters or ads. But that didn’t seem to stop the thousands of people who were on scene to celebrate the Panama Parade down Broadway.
Today’s event celebrates Panama’s independence, so there were a gaggle of fun-loving central Americans prancing down a closed Broadway, with music and dancing.
I grabbed my canon and my trusty 70-200 f/4 and ran down. Here are some of my favorite images from the parade 🙂
