People's Joy Parade

.
Yesterday brought our
Cinco de Mayo festival along Cherokee Street in our small Hispanic neighborhood. Certainly no lack of enthusiasm, though. The highlight is the People's Joy Parade, organized by local artist Sarah Paulsen. It's free-form creative craziness. These are just a few snaps - more to come.

Kudos for these posts. This is exactly the type of event that defines people's sense of community.

That's a lot of joy, though the joy in the middle shot looks a bit subdued.

OK, I need some help here B. What has Cinco de Mayo have to do with People's Joy Parade? I think you folks in the Lou just sit around dreaming up stuff so you can put on a wacky outfit and have fun! :)Come to think of it, not a bad idea!

Hey that's my friend Pete in the first one! I'm surprised in all your years of documenting the local weirdos that you haven't run into someone I knew before.
