She loved her vestido with its twirly skirt...
Bomba y Plena (de Puerto Rico) The other little girls all wore white headscarves during this dance. When I asked her why hers was red, she said "Because I was the star of the show." Well, of course!
Joropo (de Venezuela) Please pardon the lady's head in the shot. She was enjoying the show so much she was practically dancing in her seat. I got both her and her husband's heads in several shots. I'll have to arrive earlier next time to score front row seats!
Somos el Mundo (We Are the World)
All the kids were lined up side by side, but of course the Pumpkinhead had to break ranks and do her own thing.
An impromptu solo during the interview portion of the pageant, when the pumpkinhead just broke out in song (¡en español, por supuesto!) instead of answering her question. Apparently her classmate doesn't appreciate the "melodic" tones of her voice. I love the two ladies behind the table, though. That's probably how I looked, too, llena de orgullo.
