Carnival in Les Saintes

Our short visit to Les Saintes happened to correspond with carnival.  Carnival on this small island is very different then those we've seen on other islands.  It's more about family and a lot less skin.  
The participants were primarily school-age girls in floral costumes in keeping with this years theme, a Tropical Garden.  Many of the children watching the parade were also in costume. 

 We are not sure what these were.  Garbage piles?  Compost?  No, that's an ax in his head.
