Cadets, Saturday, Brooklyn Bridge Park

It appeared on Saturday that military cadets were taking over Brooklyn Bridge Park but it turned out that numerous Quincea├▒era groups were flooding the park for photo shoots.

Quincea├▒era is a 15th birthday coming-of-age celebration for Latina girls.

According to various Internet posts, in Mexico cadets would often participate in the ceremony. Today cadet uniforms are often worn in honor of this tradition.
