On our first day in Cotacachi, we were lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to see an amazing parade. I'm not sure what was being celebrated but I think it had something to do with music and the schools in town. All ages participated in the parade and they demonstrated the various dances throughout Latin America, wearing the appropriate dress.
I especially enjoyed the youngest dancers, and the oldest were able to participate in their wheelchairs!
Hope you enjoy the pictures:
The youngest ...
Even the dog got in the act!
The indigenous dress
... and the oldest!
The parade lasted for over an hour. I'm sure that everyone worked very hard on putting this together. It looked perfect, and everyone was sure enjoying themselves.
