Independence Day

May 15 is a special day in Paraguay...Independence Day.
You will notice the colors of red, white, and blue appearing in many shop windows and the Paraguayan flag will be displayed in many places as well.

Luque celebrates this day by having a parade.

The main street through Luque is blocked off and becomes lined with spectators trying to catch a glimps of the students they know.

Students from many of Luque's schools will march right down the middle of main street.

Its a fun time to be patriotic and support the nations schools.
