Colorful Latino Festival

posted on 11th of october, 2010

Every year in the mount pleasant neighborhood of washington dc a latino festival takes place in late september. This festival offers free food, souvenirs, entertainment with the main event being a parade that takes place around mid day. Latino people from many parts of the world show up including teen age beauty queens, dancers and other performers. Colorful costumes are worn by these people and make for good photo opportunities. Just be sure to bring plenty of memory as you will want to take a lot of photos-maybe a spare battery as well. The highlight of the parade is the brazilian dance performance with many attractive women dressed in colorful plumage. If you decide to take a break from the parade be sure to sample some of the free food offered. Many large latino food companies like goya offer tacos and soda free to the public. There are also many vendors the sell kabobs, stews and other latino food as well. The festival runs the entire day into the evening.

About me

I like to travel and have been to many places like California, Europe, Maine and Mexico. I live in Washington D.C. and have also taken pictures around my home including the new WWII Memorial. Digital cameras come and go so like everyone here I am always trading up. The summer is coming to end here in Washington DC and I am doing sunset shots and looking forward to Autumn.
