May Day 2006

May Day Parade, May 7, 2006CE Minneapolis, MN

The annual Mayday Parade, sponsored by In The Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre, is quite the thing. This year, weather was near-perfect, though I was farther South along the parade route than usual. I took a bunch of pictures of the parade, some of the celebration/picnic at Powderhorn Park.
