Heard loud cheering and the squeals of children and looked out from my balcony. A huge crowd of people lined the boulevard across from the hotel, both sides of the street, for blocks. Floats, costumed characters, marching bands and more.
People on the float pictured were throwing fistfuls of candy to the audience. Christmas? New Year? Some celebration I never heard of? Whatever it was, it was quite the spectacle.
