Panama’s metropolitan bay-front highway, the Cinta Costera, becomes a public space for physical activities on the last Sunday of every month through an initiative by the Ministry of Public Works (MOP) called “Cinta Viva.” The next event takes place on Sunday, February 24.
Families are encouraged to participate from 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on bicycles, walking or on roller skates. Water and humidifiers will be provided to beat the heat.
Other activities that await attendees this Sunday are clowns, musical performances, face painting and a dog show. The “Verano Canino” (Canine Summer) event will take place near the Miramar towers with different dog-related competition categories like races, costumes and agility.
One of the eye-catching characteristics of the first Cinta Viva activity which took place in January this year was the presence of horses along Panama City’s waterfront. Two horses that are now part of the National Police were a major attraction among those present.
