Ponta Delgada - 8 July

Mon 10 Jul 2006 15:41

Today we watched the city's annual parade.  There were many floats drawn by animals; bulls, cows, horses, goats and sheep, and a few that were customised trucks and vans.  Groups of musicians and dancers came past, as well as people distributing bread and wine.
It was strange to see all these animals parading right through the city centre.  Fortunately all the animals were extremely well behaved.
We were given wine by some of the floats.
Watching with our friends from Wild Alliance
