Easter in Boquete

We will be in Boquete from April 3-10. Easter weekend is part of that week. What should we expect during that weekend?

I'm not a Boquete expert, but Easter in Panama usually follows this pattern:

- Processions. Some towns do them every day of Easter, but I don't know what Boquete does specifically.

- No alcohol on Good Friday. It's supposedly a day to spend in meditation. Some people party hard nevertheless, but it can't be that obvious.

- Saturday after Good Friday is quite a party as the ban on alcohol is lifted and everybody has been looking forward to drinking again.

I've asked a friend from Boquete about more specifics, I'll post here later.

Got a reply from my friend.

There is a big procession on Good Friday. People from out of town come to watch it.

There are also some processions on other days. It seems there's a men's procession on Wednesday and a women's procession on Thursday (these days might be wrong, to be honest, he wasn't too sure about this).
