Carnival might be over, but partying is certainly not in Casco Viejo! specially the art type. Next week, we`ll have MACRO, a festival that started last year and blended fashion with photography and art shows.  This year, they are moving into Plaza Catedral (last year they were at Plaza Herrera), and will host their fashion shows on the 18th and 19th.

But the festival starts earlier, from March 15th, mainly with a series of movies at the Canal Museum, featuring the work of Panamanian movie directors, an industry that has been slowly growing but making very valid and interesting social commentaries.

Access to the Casco is going to be open to traffic and the organization has provided with buses from the nearby Cinta Costera so you can park there and just move around walking.  Casco Parking will be opening its 110 parking spots, so everyone has an option!

Here is the schedule for next week, all of them are free entrance, so enjoy!
