2013 Deel parade

The Deel parade was rained out on July 13 and rescheduled for July 20. There were 15,000 participants in the parade.
Mongolians have their traditional costumes plus a flair for colors and designs. It is a photographer's dream.
We had Family History training in Darkhan on the 20th so I counted on Elder Stewart (mission medical doctor) to get some good pictures and share them with me.
As usual, his photography was stunning. Mongolia is stunning. Here are 30 + pictures of the Deel parade. I don't think you'll get bored. I didn't.
