    Independence Day Celebrations in Costa Rica

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Independence Day celebrations in Costa Rica often feature parades of school children carrying flags and dressed in traditional Costa Rican clothing or other costumes. Bruce Thomson, 29, took this photo in 2006 when he was living in the country. “Celebrations often begin the night before with town gatherings and the lighting of home-made, patriotically decorated lanterns,” said the World Bank economist.
