    Full titles read: "In Sunny Havana - Brilliantly decorated floats... inaugurate Carnival Season in Cuban Capital."

    Havana, Cuba.

    High angle L/S of the streets of Havana; a slightly closer shot shows several cars covered in streamers that are part of the carnival. Various M/Ss of brilliant floats going by; girls sit beneath a model fountain and throw streamers; glamour girls on a kind of Arabian Nights float recline, wearing feathered head-dresses and sparkly costumes. Streamers are thrown onto passing cars in the parade from the balcony of one of the buildings on the route. M/S of a glamour girl in a jazzy costume (shorts and a one-shouldered loose top) on a float carrying a band; she waves a baton and blows kisses.
