MPLS / May Day Parade

Images from Powderhorn Park


Above: A mighty, mighty mushroom band. All images are from the May Day Parade last Sunday (May 4). Invited by our cultural cruise directors Hazel, Murphy, & Tozer (a highly influential local consulting group), we found a crowded spot close to the entrance of Powderhorn Park where the parade meets the day long festival.

As hints of SPF 100+ mixed with a smattering of patchouli, the parade delighted with various oddities and profundities.


Above: Grieving for lost souls? A silent demonstration evokes deeper questions.


Above: This fanciful group called for “Sweeping Change!”


Above: Flower power forever.


Above: A demonstration of excess and against excess in our culture. Apropo excess, look, an infinity photograph!


Above: Probably the most stunning puppet of the entire parade, a mighty bear strolled through the crowd.


Above: Trailing the main parade were several local political causes, this one was especially inspiring. More on Farheen Hakeem.

After a long winter, welcome relief! Happy May Day.
