Parade • 5 May 2008 • The SnowBlog



I'm in Minneapolis right now. Today was a day of powerful sunshine out of cloudless blue skies. I am scorched a slight pinkish colour. Anna and her friends invited me to watch the Mayday Parade with them and I beheld all kinds of eyeball-boggling things. The bear in that thumbnail (click for a larger version) was amazing. And why wouldn't there be a little kid riding along on top? There were dozens of bands, and giant papier maché trucks and heads and something-I-couldn't-identify that was was either a bug or maybe the planet. It was really something. More pictures below.

The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
