We came to the festival primarily to see the Rancho Caballo de Puro Raza Azteca perform. They are Mexican dancing horses, we may have seen them at the Rose Bowl Parades which we have attended as they have performed in those parades.
I was going to close this post at this point, however I do want to mention a hike we took today at the La Feria Nature Center. At one of the lakes there we caught a wonderful sight of numerous ducks and white pelicans together on the shore. Among them we were also able to espy a great egret and little egret. Taking their picture was a bit difficult because we feared they would fly off if we came too close to them. It will be necessary for you to enlarge the picture in order to appreciate the variety of birds pictured below.
