Carnaval Santo Domingo

Sunday, we met up with Lynne and Jacob and went to the national carnaval parade in Santo Domingo. It was amazing. There were groups from all over the country coming to show off their carnaval get ups. This was just a parade and we were in no danger of being hit. Even the on lookers were dressed up.

Many of the regions had costumes themed with something special about their region. Many coastal cities had a huge emphasis on marine life in their outfits.

It is impossible to try to describe, so I will just post a lot of pictures. Click on the photos to enlarge them and then just go back to view the rest.
