I don't know the significance of powder and the parade but every time I've gone I've seen this. Some of the fellas pour talcom powder or something like that onto their heads. Perhaps someone out there knows the significance of it and how it pertains to the Caribbean. Perhaps a Haitian tradition to ward off evil spirits?
