Passing Through My Culture by Kevin Barcellos

The Stockton cinco de mayo
parade was held downtown
on Saturday May sixth.
There were approximately
five square blocks
closed to vehicle traffic.
Walking through the streets
I passed beautiful hispanic
women pushing strollers. I
passed toddlers in cowboy
boots waving miniature
flags. I passed intersections
filled with crowded smiles
and joyous laughter. I passed
side streets where children
were playing soccer. And
I passed the starting point
of the parade,
all while trying to catch
the ten-thirty showing
of Spider-Man 3 at
the Regal Cinema 16.
