I have no idea how the tiny little ones can keep up with the hours on the road or indeed keep on their costume. Some toddlers are carried thru asleep in arms or pushed in decorated prams. It's too cute, I can't cope.
Here in my snaps from the side streets, you can see girls with fish crowns on their heads. One has hers on backwards and the other has taken hers off completely. I wish they had turned profile so you can see the whole fish on a wire. It's genius.
I've also captured the braids of the girls in the crowds for the multi-colour plastic beads that decorate the detailed plaits. Everyone is in party mode, on or off the floats.
