October 12th marked the 130th anniversary of the founding of Necochea. Along with my chorus, Coro Alta Mira, I participated in the city's parade to celebrate this special date. This year, inclement weather forced the cancellation or postponement of a number of events, but fortunately, this colorful and chaotic display of civic pride went off without a hitch. Most of these photos were snapped before the parade got underway.
[Several colectividades (ethnic clubs and organizations) were represented including the Basques (left) and the Calabrians (right).]
And last but not least, it wouldn't be a parade without some gauchos!
