Walking back from yoga yesterday, I Just happened upon a parade heading west on Calle 34 Norte. And not just any parade, this one was a kiddie bike (or any other wheeled vehicle) parade, so of course I had to whip out my camera for a few photos.
I don't know exactly what the parade was for as there were no signs and virtually no spectators other than a couple other random people who were also walking in the area. Maybe it was a nursery school group. The children and some of the parents or teachers were dressed up in colorful costumes, and kids and adults were braving a rare chilly, blustery morning here in Playa.
Check out this adorableness. It was a really short parade; I had to grab photos fast or I would have missed it completely.
There were a few drummers keeping the beat.
And there they go!
One little guy and his dad, I guess, were stragglers. Several cars passed on Avenida 20 between the main body of the parade and these two before they made it across the road. If this tiny cyclist isn't cheek-pinching cute, I don't know who is.
It's fun to run across something unexpected like this here in PDC. Everyone seemed to be having fun even on a chilly morning, and seeing it brought a smile to my face for the rest of my walk.
