After greater than seven years of planning, the Home of Panama, a member of the Home of Pacific Relations, formally opened its doorways Sunday.
Supporters marked the opening of the museum on the cottage in Balboa Park with a ribbon slicing and cultural pageant.
Neighborhood leaders, elected officers and worldwide dignitaries, together with Gilda Garcia, the Consul Common of Panama in Los Angeles, have been anticipated to be a part of the ceremony, to supply locals with a window into the traditions and customs of the Panamanians each in San Diego and overseas.
Dorotea Lindsay, president of the Home of Panama known as Sunday “a beautiful day for San Diegans and the Panamanian group.”
In 2015, the town of San Diego marked the centennial of the California-Panama Exposition that was hosted in Balboa Park in 1915 to rejoice the opening of the Panama Canal.
The Home of Pacific Relations, based in 1935, is a nonprofit group group devoted to furthering cooperation and understanding between nationwide teams within the U.S.
It consists of 33 cultural teams, lots of which have their very own small cottage in Balboa Park that’s furnished and staffed by members and provides guests a glimpse of every nation’s tradition, historical past and traditions.
