As we walked to the Alameda, the floats lined up on the caraterra heading into town.
At the Alameda the food stalls lined up for business.
The crowd lined up for the parade.
This is a very long and colorful parade. It is much bigger than the Independence Day parade and the children are all in beautiful costumes and not their school uniforms.
It is impossible to show you everything, so I have chosen my favorites.
This is the parade of the pryamids, the cheerleaders, the dancers, the aristocrats, the school athletic teams, the revolutionists, the bands, the musicians, the cowboys, the horses and many, many children.
OMG! What a music fest last night at Las Palmeras here in Alamos. The large room where we sang was packed, the portal outside was packed, and so was the central courtyard. The owners had to run and locate more tables and chairs.
We had a great time! I saw a lot of people taking photographs. Please send me some of the pictures! Please! Please!
I would do it all again, in a heartbeat!
So before I close and get back to my cards, I have to give a special thank you to the man below for letting me be part of a real great group of singers and players last night!
adios, linda lou
