During the Parade of Nations, I spotted an impressive headdress that looked like a bearded face. I also saw Mayor Madeline Rogero snapping pictures with her phone.
For lunch, I had a tasty chicken and rice bowl from the Honduras booth. For dessert, I bought a dulce de coco from the Puerto Rico booth without knowing what it was. I thought the name meant “sweet chocolate” but it actually meant “sweet coconut.” The dish consisted of coconut chunks in a sweet chocolate sauce. On Twitter, I asked festival-goers to check on me in case I slipped into a dulce coma.
