Weary Pirate by Jake Richter
This image is from a photograph taken during the children’s carnival parade on the island of Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean. The children’s carnival parade is an annual festive event, part of “Karnaval”, which features song and dance competitions, the election of a King & Queen of Karnaval, and numerous parades filled with countless floats and gaily attired participants. Bonaire’s Karnaval season is at the same time as the similar (and much larger) Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans. Karnaval has it roots in Catholicism, where such celebrations are a last hurrah prior to the 40 days of fasting, repentance, and self-reflection known as Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter. The final Karnaval parade, a night time event, occurs on Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.
