We had our windshield wipers going all the way to the parade site, but I don't think a drop fell during the actual event. In any case, nobody seemed at all concerned about the prospect of a little rain on the parade.
I wore my skull mask most of the time I was making pictures. I added a few flowers to lighten the mood a bit. No one was shocked by my appearance, but I think it did give me a little more freedom of movement.
The theme of this year's event was "El Agua Es La Vida, No Se Vende Se Defiende". So, the weather was appropriate, and it made the photography a little easier as well.
Quite a few causes and social issues were represented in the parade, but I didn't identify any actual politicians in spite of the nearness of the election.
