Cuenca Kids 1406 Photograph by Al Bourassa


MELT YOUR HEART with the children of Ecuador. The Pase Del Nino parade on Christmas Eve in Cuenca, Ecuador is world famous, both for its pageantry, beauty, and length. The parade lasts about eight hours and it has some of the most colorful costumes, animals, horses decorated with food, dancing troupes, and many tributes to the baby Jesus on his birthday with thanks for the abundance of blessings. The children are a huge part of the parade and are mesmerizing, so well behaved and so beautiful, as only children can be.
These photos are all taken on the run, no posing, although a float may stop and allow a child to look at the camera.
This digitally altered remake artwork is derived from a photograph taken December 24/14 at Cuenca, Ecuador, South America.
It is so sad that there was no parade in 2020 due to Covid.
Final processing done with Smart Photo Editor and Photoshop.
