September 15th was Independence Day here in Costa Rica. The night before, the 14th, there is a big procession where people walk the streets with Faroles. Faroles are home made lanterns based on traditional themes. A lantern depicting a traditional house, or with the colors from the Costa Rican flag would be examples of these patriotic themes. As for the actual Independence Day Costa Rica there is a big parade with the marching bands from all the schools. I was able to move around and get some shots to give to the people involved.
