These fabulous clowns were entertaining in Parque Colon in Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone for Dia de la Altagracia. The children were all fits and giggles.
One of the many living statues at the Hardrock Hotel and Casino in Bavaro, DR. The makeup is truly amazing, and they don’t move an inch all the while they are “performing”. I cannot imagine how tired they must be when they are done!
Master of the bonfire at one of the beach hotels. This young man was awarded entertainer of the year. He was truly phenomenal.
There are many more costumes used in Dominican Republic. I encourage you to Google “carneval” in DR. Amazing artistry exists in this country. Many of the traditional costumes are used in performances as well. From hotels to public venues, costumes run the gambit.
for offering up the challenge of this assignment.
Listen to the palms…
