Below:  Pictures of our group in Durham's Holiday Parade in October.

We enjoyed being a part of Durham's 2019 Holiday Parade.   We had 9 nations with  flags, banners, and dancers.

Our Lead Car featured banners for Arusha, Durham-UK, and Kostroma (other side of the car).

Our Celaya, Mexico group was colorful, with the flag and car decorations.
Their group included 4 dancers.  

Arusha and Durham-UK flag bearers helped lead our group in the parade.

This car represented Kavala and Kostroma.
