Gran desfile de carnaval el domingo 28 de febrero de 2010, a partir de las 3 de la tarde, partiendo desde la Francisco Richiez Doucudray esq. Duarte, doblando por la calle Teniente Amado García y luego tomando la Av. Santa Rosa para girar por la calle Duarte, culminando la parada en el Parque Duarte.
