February 2014 - Mazatlan Mexico
We were caught totally unaware last night, as we were having a beer. This was serendipity as we were planning on going to the top of the Freeman Hotel for sunset. But it looked crowded as it was the first Friday of the month and therefore Art Walk (click here for photos of January's Art Walk), meaning there were lots of tourists and gringos strolling the area.
We kept hearing fireworks going off and then sirens. Then the parade started for the Queen of Carnaval candidates!
Each contestant had a unique colour that her entourage/fans wore.
