Saturday morning over 30 students chanted their favorite Breakthrough cheers while walking in the 2014 Swallow’s Day Parade. Students and staff were honored to be a part of the “largest non-motorized parade in the nation!” For those unfamiliar with the event, Swallow’s Day is hosted by the San Juan Capistrano Fiesta Association and consists of a full day of festivities that show off the rich culture and unique character of this great town. The Swallow’s Day Parade is part of the larger, Fiesta de las Golindrinas, or Festival of the Swallows and tied to the return of the swallows to the Mission of San Juan Capistrano.
Many Breakthrough students walked in support of other community groups they are involved in including, Ballet Folkorico Capistrano, Marichi for All, and La Danza del Chenelo. All in all, the event was a great success and we are already looking forward to next year!
