Everyone Loves A Parade - Part 1

We don't usually enjoy parades -- they often seem too militaristic and many of the folks participating don't look like they are enjoying themselves.

But this was some parade. Started out pretty "normal" -- with a marching band or two. Evolved into some silly and some beautiful -- creative and energetic people and their floats. I took tons of photos...here are some.

Where and Why:
We were planning to meet Susan and Tim in Eugene for the weekly Saturday Market -- farmer's market and craft fair. And stumbled into this Eugene Celebration Weekend Parade. Beautiful weather, great crowd, and, as you can tell from the photos, this is a liberal town. Alan said he saw more tie dye that day then he did in all of the '60s!
