1st of June Festival in Tirana

Kids from all over Albania invaded Tirana on the occasion of the Children’s day, or what it’s known as 1st of June festival. It was incredibly cute. Toddlers, kids, and teenagers were walking on the boulevard, grouped on several meeting points on street corners to dance and sing. It was a very happy sight.

I especially liked how many of them were dressed in traditional costumes from different parts of Albania, and how they performed some nice dances as well.

And even those who did not participate in the dancing were dressed up for the occasion, as we say in Egypt “labess elli 3ala el 7abl”.

I took my little girl and strolled around, taking photos as we walked. Most of the kids were welcoming in taking their pictures, and I was really happy about that, especially with my shyness about street portraits.

Here are some of the photos, I hope you’ll like them.
