Everybody loves parades. Fortunately, we got out of jail and home in time for the annual sea turtle festival in Matapalo. The festival started with a parade. The Matapalo school band played.
All the local schools participated, including the Bullis students:
I helped hold the banner at the front of the line!
After the parade, everyone gathered for a program. Park Ranger Carlos Diaz was the MC, and he even sang as part of the show.
There was more music, and all the students performed skits. Some pretended to be leatherbacks and laid eggs . . .
and the Bullis students performed a skit with an intricate dance.
After the program, there was lots of food! (my favorite part)
But those research students can't take a party. Look at them napping after the festival!
I was tired too, though. I was ready for bed and the trip home.
