Their idea of a parade is a bit different from ours. All the "important people" had spots sectioned off (including the PC group) with chairs. There is not parade route, it's more like 1000 feet of road blocked off as a stage. There was a presentation in the beginning (boring) done in 4 different languages. One of the languages was English, for us, but their accent was so strong (or pronunciation was bad) that I could barely make out what was said.
After the presentation, different groups in the community put on a short skit....like their idea of a parade float. The whole ceremony was EXTREMELY long...6 hrs. The officials were even getting annoyed and started cutting people's skits short.
