Hola everyone! Some/most of you reading are experiencing cold days, long nights, and endless winter. For us here it means HOT HOT HOT days and Carnaval! Santa Cruz celebrates Carnaval officially the 4th & 5th of March this year, but last Saturday night there was a Pre-Carnaval parade. The music, the dancing, and the colors and costumes were fabulous!! I took tons of photos and have cobbled together a video of some of the dancing for you at the end.
Mica loves dancing and Naynay was entranced by the spectacle. The parade was at night, and I wasn’t sure I wanted to take them because I was afraid it would be a big drunken party. But it was vivid and exciting, safe, and very much a family event.
The video is just under 5 minutes, and it’s a series of clips from several of the dances we saw. Make sure your sound is on, because you don’t want to miss the music!
