Pagara Everywhere in Downtown Oranjestad

 

Shooting pagaras on New Years’ Eve is a long coming tradition on the island of Aruba. It’s a big happening. Everyone comes down to watch and celebrate the last day of the year. The centre bursts with people and cars. There’s music. Dande groups go from shop to shop singing and wishing everyone the very best for the year to come. When banks, shops close they shoot a pagara for luck. Here are some scenes of the mainstreet and in the touris area along the boardwalk.
