These are 2 of the floats from the aquatic parade in our regional capitol. The 2nd one is from the Cucua of San Miguel Centro, a town near ours. They use the Cucua tree to make pretty much anything you can think of, including the clothing of the people on the float. And, yes, the floats move down the river with the help of people swimming along side and pushing. One of the floats was pulled by a boat this year but I like the other way better.
