Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of little kids paraded today in honor of spring. And they were dressed in every conceivably possible themed costume.  Pirates, flower pots, fairies, Disney characters, NFL football players, cheerleaders, NASCAR drivers, animals, insects, children’s TV characters (like smurfs), you name it, and it was somehow represented in this 20 city block long extravaganza of tiny children.

And most of the city turned out to line the streets and watch their children parade. This cultural event is just another instance of what binds Mexicans to their families and society. And there are literally dozens of these events every year.
