This festivity is held to celebrate the triumphs of the queens during the past Panama’s Carnivals, as well as preparing the ground for the next carnival for both the “Tuna de Calle Arriba” and the “Calle Abajo”.
This event is also celebrated to present the candidates of each “tuna” (traditional wind instrument band) who aspire to the queen of the next carnival, since this is considered the first formal and legitimate activity in which the new candidates participate.
