April 30 is International Children’s Day and Mexico celebrates it with gusto. KKIS Project volunteers and Seaside Rotary members arrived early at the Cristo Rey School north and west of Playa del Carmen bringing hot dogs with all the trimmings, pinatas filled with candy, face paint and water balloons. Rain was threatening so the metal student desks from several classrooms had been moved outside to make room for pinatas.

Children ate hot dogs, played games and had their faces painted.

A group of university students from UNID arrived with fancy cakes and more face paint. Also a group from a local church brought Barbie Dolls and rubber balls for many children.

Gabriela Barquet who has been very helpful getting KKIS Mexican paperwork in order, came. She is currently running for federal office.

The four pinatas were smashed with great ceremony. Candy scattered everywhere and the kids scrambled after it.

And finally a big group shot of students, teachers, university students and KKIS volunteers.

The rain held off for the party and only sprinkled us a little on the drive back to Playa. A happy Children’s Day was had by all.
