Being invited to participate in a parade is super exciting - even if the invite comes on a Friday morning for a Monday morning parade. On September 8th, the 4th and 5th graders and their teachers were invited to walk in the parade celebrating the 175th birthday of Gregorio Luperon, a key person in the history of the Dominican Republic, particularly in the arena of fighting for independence.
So Monday morning, the streets of Montellano were filled with drum lines, Dominican flags, patriotic kids in their school uniforms as they marched from one end of town to the other.
Watching a parade is fun. Taking photos of a parade is fun. But the BEST parades are those that we are invited to
join, moving from a place of watching to a place of partaking.
