Old, Young, and In Between

Dressing up and performing in Carnaval is like breathing to the Uruguayos.  They have samba schools that start teaching children at the age of three.  Old ladies and men still dress up in their outfits.  And they think of it as a family event.  When we left the parade after midnight, there were still preschoolers raptly watching.  The following pictures show some of the family and community aspect of the Inaugural parade.
