St. Vincent Heritage Day, October 20th, 2015

We were downtown Kingstown on Tuesday October 20th renewing 7 of the missionaries visas at the Passport office.  When we got there we notice that Bay Street was lined with school children.  I asked them what was going on and they told me about the parade.  It was boiling hot that day and the parade was supposed to start at 1:00, but finally started at 3:00 p.m.  Even though it was so hot, the children and parade participants were all having a great time dancing and performing.  It was a fun parade.  Each school followed their contestant for the Miss Heritage Pageant, which followed after the parade.  

 One school group with their queen contestant.  Every school on the island has uniforms.  

I was glad to finally get a picture of these wheelbarrow men.  They are everywhere downtown.  They are hired by people to haul groceries, appliances or whatever people need taken to their homes.  Most people here do not have cars and either walk or take vans to get to town and back to their homes.  There is a lot of walking and these men carry their items for a fee wherever they need to go.  Some of the homemade wheelbarrows are painted bright colors.
