May Day 2007

May Day Parade, May 6, 2007CE 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 predicted to be bad and was ominous in the morning, but by the time the parade started the wind had died down and it warmed up. I took a bunch of pictures of the parade, some of the celebration/picnic at Powderhorn Park.
