It's a May Day thing

It's a parade. It's a community event. It's a tradition. It's a festival. It's art. It's random! Anyone and everyone can be in the parade. There is nothing motorized about it - no cars - it's all people-powered. The first Sunday of May every year. You just have to be here to understand (and even then you might not understand!)

But here are some images nevertheless...















The falling house of debit/credit cards:



Stilters, a must at May Day!



Big pigs, some on stilts!



Some very interesting folks with weird musical instruments and a giant piggy bank (or boar bank?)



My favorite parade bears, the grizzly and the polar, and one of the biggest bicycle contraptions pulling a very large wooden...thing.



Band on a bike!



Ah, May Day. Can't wait to see what you come up with next year!
