Happy 26th Belize!

These shots are a compilation of two different parades - one for school children in downtown Corozal that took place yesterday and the Carnival Parade today. We thought we missed today's parade, someone told us it started at 9:00AM. It didn't. It started just after we got to town to Mo Si's Grocery on the highway through town.

The first shots here are of the children's parade going right by the central square downtown.

These next shots are of the Carnival Parade today. The first shot (none of these are in time-sequence order) reminded us of Cheney (pronounced Cheeney not Chaney), Washington's parades with all the farm implements in the parade.
