Carnival time in Roses
Some thought had gone in to the choreography of the dancers behind the floats; in fact it was like a zumba class but as the afternoon wore and the drinks continued to flow the parade did become quite a bit more ragged. The drivers of the big tractors didn't seem fazed by three- or four-year-olds running in front of the them. In fact one little girl of about three was perched right on the front like a figurehead on a ship.
Everyone was having a good time and some of the marchers had such a good time that they joined in with different groups when they had finished their part of the parade. This was easy to do as the parade lasted for three hours.
No horses, no marching bands, just a lot of people having fun on a lovely Sunday afternoon.
