Parade the Circle

Where the wild things are.

Hey--you guys forgot the Erin-face flag!

Frequent Owner's Manual commenter, Bill.

Whoa. That's some grouchy tree.

Pretty ladies.

Swirly and tall.

Cool man.

Baby, you and me could make beautiful music together.

Dig the band.

Big hat and flowers

Don't bite me, scary dude!

More pretty ladies.

All right already! You're in charge!

Thanks for holding off until the parade was over, rain.

@ RJ - The Season can be an occasion unto itself.

Mr. L said...

I could go for an entire parade of grouchy trees.

Erin O'Brien said...

It's just a big ol' free party, RJ and other nonClevioso. The focus for paraders is environmental and cultural awareness with a healthy dose of arts and creativity. Here's some coverage.

You cannot believe how many people come down for this. It's fun!

If I didn't know any better, I'd say these photos look just like downtown Montpelier, Vermont you know how I feel on any given day. Except these folks (in the pictures) are dressed more ... uh ... normal.


P.S. Yes, I know I'm going to catch hell for this one.
