Multi Cultural Festival

We had a pleasant surprise on Saturday. Not only did we get to feed and photograph the ducks but this festival was across the lake at our park. There were various dancers, music, singing and food. This headdress was so ornate and it was very interesting to watch those dressed like this interact with the people, holding hands, forming a circle and having a wonderful time.
That is some amazing headdress. This reminds me of Jason Daniels who used to post cool shots of dancers in Paupa New Guinea. Nicely done!

@amandal Thank you so much, Amanda. I was excited to get past the other cameras/people and snap a few photos. There were some awesome costumes that I wish I could have captured photos of.

@pandorasecho Thank you very much, Dixie. I know nothing about macaws but do they shed their feathers is what you are referring to?

@grammyn Thank you so much, Katy. It was so colorful there. Kind of wish I had the other lens on at this point to show more. The first time I have really been out like this in over two months. Recovery from being sick and the blood clot (it will take time) and other tests and Drs has been crazy.

Yes it does remind me of what Jason @bobfoto used to post! So must have some Spanish influence. How exciting to be right there!

@maggiemae I did not follow Jason. Will have to check out what he posted back some time. It was really cool to be there. We could hear the music change to tribal drums so got to see the end of this. There was a stage with singers from various cultures and so much more. Fun time. My first time out like this in over 2 months. It has been a crazy recovery. Hope you are doing well. Thank you as always for your comments, Maggiemae.

@taffy Thank you so much, Taffy. I have to check out Jason's photos. I did not follow him so did not see his photos. It was a fun time. It was nice to have some fun as it had been way too long.
