There is a calendar of events for the church posted all around town. Since it is just before Lent, a lot of activities were scheduled for the end of February. One was the carnaval.
We didn’t realize it was time for the parade until we passed by the Santo Domingo church and found the people getting ready to begin.

These little boys were having a great time being big people. The pants alone are as tall as they are.
This picture should help explain the next ones. We didn’t see the sign on the truck until later.
This group did a little dance before things got started.
The men dancing with men had a few toes stepped on.
There were a lot of people watching already, even though the parade had not started yet.
Sitting to wait is easier than standing on stilt legs.
Finally, the parade gets moving.
