Cascarones and piñatas

These are busy times for the Piñata Palace, maybe not so busy as during the Christmas season, but close. Every day at this time of year, people come and fill the beds of their pickups with Easter pi&#241atas. A truckload of giant standing rabbits is quite a sight, but I didn’t manage to capture any image of that. The ones under the canopy are mostly those very large rabbits; another favorite seasonal form is that of a basket, with long crepe-paper streamers hanging down. The Palace is having a special on cascarones, those shells filled with confetti for breaking over people’s heads. For those who’d like to make their own cascarones and also support a community-based group, Latina Mami is having a make-it-yourself party and Easter-egg hunt tomorrow.
