These pictures are from the childrens parade in San Nicolas for this years carnival. As I said in the test picture, the first one is our neighbor (on the right) & his friend.

OMG! These are so great and so colorful! And I just love the fact that the kids get to participate in their own separate parade - what a great idea! Very Happy

Thanks so much for posting these! Very Happy I've seen alot of photos of the regular Carnival parades but never ones of the Children's Parade!

The floats are under "man-power" NOT horse power. If you look closely, you will see them being pushed. Since the parade is 2 or 3 miles long, that would be quite a work out.

There would be a float, followed by a group of kids all wearing the same costume. Then there would be a large flat bed semi with live band. Each semi had 12 - 16 large speakers, enough to keep your heart pounding.

There were small trucks carrying water and juices for all the kids to drink while walking in the parade. They would also throw candies & trinkets to the crowd.

By the way Terri, don't call me Karen. LOL That's twice today.

I can't imagine pushing a float in that heat! Shocked

I see one little parade walker is already snoozing in dad's arms in the last photo.

Thanks Teri. I know you didn't know. Karen is worse on computers than I am.

I'm feeling real good, but have a lot of limits on what I can do and eat. I go back to the doctor Apr. 5 - hopefully to get full release.

Wonderful pictures, Tom. Thank you for sharing a part of the Carnival that we seldom see. I'm melting just knowing the floats are all people-powered.

Happy to know you are on the road to recovery and can look ahead to spring. Before you know it, you'll be in Aruba again!
