Charro Days 2014: Children’s Parade

Yesterday was the Charro Days Children’s Parade. Kids from elementary school to high school dressed in different costumes representing different parts of Mexico and performed traditional dances. I took part in this parade when I was a kid too, so it brought back fond memories. Eva was really excited and intrigued by the dancers, but the gaps between them was far too long (10-15 minutes) and eventually the bubbles and fruit snacks couldn’t entertain her any longer so we left early. We headed over to Sombrero Festival to say hello to my dad and get a bite to eat before heading home. I’m so stoked to be home for these celebrations this year.


  1. I love all the colours and what great captures of the dancers! Makes me nostalgic for parades and dancers I saw in Tucson, AZ (where my mum lives) and then out in Hawaii. Especially love when children get opportunities to share culture, be in the dances or watching them like your daughter. Sounds like she really had a fun time too!

  2. Love! Love! Love!

    My youngest has such an affinity for Mexican culture. I’m trying really hard to keep it going. I’m afraid she’ll lose it by being here in the HI ๐Ÿ˜‰
