Something was a little off when Moppit and I reached the Ancha on our walk early this morning. Not a single car was parked on the normally busy thoroughfare that divides Centro from Colonia San Antonio.
On any other day, both curbs would be lined with cars.
Either somebody was going to be moving a giant house down the street on a flatbed — or there was a parade scheduled.
Turns out, it was the latter.
It must have been pretty decent because these beautiful dancers, musicians, and the horsemen were the very end of it.
I caught that much of it after my 10 a.m. Pilates class.
Not a lot of spectators but the day was beautiful and these young women were superb.
I asked a couple of shop owners I know along the street and I gather the parade was a tribute to the children of San Miguel.
Imagine a city that closes off its busiest thoroughfare to celebrate its children. Now that is the sign of a healthy community.
Enjoy the pictures.
And of course, the heroes of every parade in San Miguel de Allende …
