The mayor’s office confirmed that attendance this year was 145,604 people well up from 133,288 last year. The annual fair which lasted eleven days is a popular draw for Panamanians. It takes place just across the Caldera river in the center of town. It is the biggest fair of the year so the town fills with tourists. This one was a huge success.
