Last night Paul and I headed out for our last Carnaval event, the final Mazatlan Carnaval 2009 parade. The parade got going quite a ways North of Centro at about 4:30, and it finally hit Centro around 7 pm. This is the final blow-out for everyone and there was enthusiasm to burn!
The crowd kept building and building, along with the expectation and excitement. I don’t just have to tell you, I can show you what an awesome parade it was with the video I took, below.
I had taken a lot of pictures at the first parade, so I decided to practice with the new camera and its video setting. Below is a 5 minute video that I made using the iMovie program on my new Mac. Five minutes sounds like a long time, but basically I boiled an hour and a half of parade down to five minutes! That takes some doing!
I hope you take the time to check it out! And now, a nap is in order.
