I’m still sorting the 600+ photos from a wonderful nearly 3-hour parade for Independence Day here with lots of bands and flags and children. Tonight I share just a few of my children shots, some in the parade and many watching it. This satisfies what I wanted to photograph in last night’s lantern parade and did not accomplish. Children are so photogenic!
|Watching the parade with me at Gelly’s
|Representing one of the schools in the parade
|Nicole, 6 or 7, is already a drummer in a band!
Son of my Spanish teacher, in band I raised $ for.
|Some of the dancers weren’t so good, but
this group was great, with traditional dancing!
|I watched this boy sneak under the railing to sit on curb for closer view!
|The red, white & blue traditional dress is most
typical for Independence Day and I’ll show
adults wearing them another day.
|And this is the typical traditional dress for boys and men.
I wore a hat like this but no bandanna, just a red, white & blue shirt!
|Another traditional dress for 15th of September!
All of these are made by parents or a seamstress,
you cannot buy them in stores.
|And finally, a father-son bonding moment on the parade route.
This may be my favorite photo from the parade.
I have lots of photos of a lot of bands and really a lot of flags I’ll share a few of, plus some adult costumes and some “different” things in the parade in future posts.
