10/02/2013 - Sunday is one of the busiest days during the Panama City Carnival, and this year was no exception as large crowds attended the events under sunny skies.
But also in attendance were inspectors who were on hand to ensure that vendors are following health and safety regulations.
Officials from the Panama City Fire Department said they found a number of illegal electrical and gas connections as well as defective equipment.
The Ministry of Health said that inspectors seized expired meat products and fined a number of vendors who failed to produce the proper permits.
Meanwhile, those interviewed said that they felt safe and satisfied with the event.
At security checkpoints established by the national police, prohibited objects such as lighters, confetti, portable coolers and sharp items were seized.
Sellers reported stronger sales than Saturday and the Mayor's Office said that the crowds have behaved admirably to this point.
