It is party time in Mexico as the tradition of Carnaval leads the way to Lent and the Easter Season. This is especially important in this largely Catholic country. Playa del Carmen has lately joined the Carnaval celebrations. Much larger ones take place in Cozumel and Merida. But the one here takes on its own personality. It is a family affair with the addition of a little chaos. The parade starts at one end of town and ends in the main square which is packed with families joining in the festivities. There is a midway, zillions of food stalls, craft displays with the addition of many household items from shoes, pots and pans, and furniture to boot-legged DVD's.
Join us to experience the parade---too bad there is no sound---Gangam Style featured prominently.
