Kids get chance to show wooden horses

With the universality of smartphones, television and video games, guess what youngster in Barrio México showed off Friday?

Many have wooden horses, or as they are called in Spanish caballitos de palo. The Fuerza Pública set up a procession of youngsters and their wooden horses to make friends with children and also to stress concerns for child abuse.

The procession went from the park in Barrio México Friday to the former Mercado Borbón that is now a police communications center. There the children were entertained by clowns, various games and refreshments. Also there were the mascaradas.
