Such gorgeous bright costumes. Ideal for swirling in a dance. And the whale has quite a mouth.

I love those colourful dresses! I danced bellydance for years and I loved the colourful long skirts and the scarves.

This is a wonderful post, Jo. The dancers and the mariachi remind me of all my visits to Puerto Vallarta...though, once, at the Athens Hilton, I walked in to see mariachis performing in the lobby. They were promoting tourism to Mexico. I would go to hear them every night and drink the mezcal offered. The Greeks didn't want that, for some reason. I think it tasted as good as retsina.

We grew up near SF but only went to the zoo once. :( My parents were into picnics more than attractions! I love those costumes and I bet the dancing was wonderful!! Happy Ruby Tuesday 2!

Folk music and dance is a theme I'm seeing on blogs tonight. Over at My Quality Day I've been reading about the Michigan Irish Folk Music Festival. I'm now thinking of writing a nostalgia piece about a festival I went to years ago. As always, I love your photos and your subjects are wonderfully colourful.

Lovely shots, especially the lady in white dress, swinging her skirt is classic!
