Saturday, March 28th was the annual world-wide Earth Hour. From 8:30pm - 9:30pm everyone is supposed to turn off all the electricity to fight the stop against global warming. Everyone was asked to wear a black or dark blue shirt during this time of night.
Isla Bonita and the other schools on the island met at the center park to begin a parade through the town. The parade went through the town and ended at a bonfire on the north side of the island. All the students were excited to participate in the parade whether they were playing the drums or marching. When the hour began, it got extremely dark but most every one brought a flashlight or some sort of torch. I found it really interesting at the large crowd that showed. It was neat to see the town (or majority) of the island come together to protest against global-warning.
The pictures are from the parade and the students marching towards the bonfire.
