A toddler dressed up as a paleta man for Halloween in Fresno, California, complete with a homemade cart.

This video from 2019 shows the child, named Jonathan, wearing his ice cream street vendor costume.

“Jonathan loves ice cream and the paletero is a cultural icon in our Latino culture,” his mother, Celeste Zavala, told Storyful. “We wanted a costume that was different from the everyday superhero.”
