Each Friday during Lent, a different school shows up in Llano park to strut their stuff and have one hell of a good time. It is a long standing tradition and a real feel-good event... always.
Just imagine hundreds of kids cheering like crazy and making lots of noise as they cheered their friends on.
Names spelled out in balloons? Sure, why not?
This senorita, Litzy Guadalupe González Montes, was eventual winner. Blogger buddy Shannon has an in-depth look at her
But, no doubt, it was hard to choose.
She was chosen most photogenic.
It is some sort of a competition with some nebulous criteria, but really it appears that everyone wins.
Each of the senoritas declaims, speaks about themselves, their school and friends. It seems as if all oaxaqueños can give speeches and theses ladies were no exceptions.
The senoritas parade around the statue and are given lots of flowers and encouragement.
As the minutes pass the guys have to come out and help the girls carry the flowers... and they just keep on coming.
Viernes del Lanno is always such a fun time, one filled with joy, love, and encouragement. I always feel happy after it.... but... after the ball, someone always has to clean up the mess.
