In the Caribbean port city of Limón, as in communities around the country, children and their parents took to the streets last night for the traditional desfile de faroles, a lantern parade held each year on the eve of Independence Day. Photographer Kristel Segeren was there to capture the moment in the city center and at the Caribbean School. Read more about this tradition here.
