Colombian Day Parade

The Colombian Declaration of Independence refers to the events of July 20, 1810, in Santa Fe de Bogota, in the Spanish colonial Viceroyalty of New Granada. They resulted in the establishment of a Junta de Santa Fe that day. The experience in self-government eventually led to the creation of the Republic of Gran Colombia.

The Colombian day parade happens in NYC , celebrating their Independence , the Sunday nearest July 20th , in Queens , New York City .

In general for me it was surprisingly one of the smaller parades I photoed , just over an hour long . I decided to shoot the parade with my canon 7D mark II and used the 18-135 mm lens .

It was supposed to rain this day which may have kept people from coming . I do enjoy watching and photoing the different countries celebrations . Photos below from the Colombian day parade.
