Parade during La Magdalena

3-25-06 - This photo was taken during the La Magdalena festival which was a week long. There were fireworks pretty much going off 24 hours for 7 days. Bars and cafe's were open all night and there were parades, live music, craft/clothing markets and general partying going on all over the city. I didn't get to bed until 5 AM most nights either because I was out in the crowds or because my neighbors were partying and it was impossible to sleep with all the noise. It was a blast, but I am glad it only happens once a year and also glad that during the festivities, school hadn't started yet!
