Parades in Cuenca - Part 2

Parades - Part 2

Last weekend, Pat and I went sitting in Parque Calderon and it looked like a parade might be starting soon, so we thought we would hang around for a while.  Well, an hour later, they finally got started.  Here are some of my favorite pictures:

And of course, the streetsweepers clean up after the parade is over.

We weren't sure what the purpose of the parade was, but there was a special celebration taking place down on Tres de Noviembre by the Rio Tomabamba.  So we thought they were holding a parade so that people would follow them down to the booths they had set up.  It was alot of fun to watch.  Another fun Saturday morning in Cuenca!!

  1. Thanks for the photos Sue. I love the parades, but hardly ever "happen" upon them. P.S. Glad you are back from the US.
