Procigar Festival 2022 - Nightlife
Tobacco tours, yes but Procigar Festival parties, OH HELL YES!
The far-out decor, illuminated dance floor, the culinary, right down to the table placements are all in-part due to the efforts of the entire Procigar committee.
The MVP (most valuable party) of them all is the white party held at the Monumento a los Héroes in the heart of Santiago; this gala is knownn to be the only party allowed to be held in this government monument. So grand...
THE WHITE PARTY: Monumento a los Héroes de la Restauración
This year, pink roses were given to all the women as Nirka Reyes Estrella and Raquel Quesada expressed great honor about the impact of women who work extremely hard in the tobacco industry.
The sister of the leaf call-to-action, per rose recipient was to represent solidarity; to encourage, support, uplift and share in encouragement with one another.
My call to action:
TO MY SISTERS IN SMOKE…
🌷You are enough.
🌷Attract what you desire
🌷Become what you respect.
🌷…and CONTINUE to walk in love! #sotllove
The Welcome Dinner Party's theme was tropical; the night starts off with perfect lighting, some of the best food, a cultured fill performance and an annual dance competition followed by confetti. Everything about this night is an introductory to what the dominican culture is all about. No stone was unturned.
The #1 rule is, if you agree to a dance, you must complete the entire song; this is the night to learn the meringue and bachata!
WELCOME DINNER PARTY: Parque Central de Santiago
In conclusion, thee most sophisticated evening of Procigar festival is The Gala Dinner Party;
Evening gowns, tailored suits and tuxedos fills one of the most romantic rooms you've ever been in.
Some of the most well designed and curated cigar humidors filled with your most sought after cigars from a brand is auctioned off for charity; a charity benefitting the personel and families of cigar factories led by non-other than Michael Herklots as the auctioneer.
...that guy can talk suger out of a cookie!
