The All Species Parade

Earth Day In Forest Park 2013 12

The event that gets our Earth Day festival rolling is always the All Species parade. It is always lead by Joia, an all-percussion band that's hard to classify. That's Rick Kraemer, the chief guy, in the top picture, blowing his whistle to start the march.

Actually, I didn't see any species in the parade other than H. Sapiens and the microbes that dwell in us. Usually there are at least a couple of dogs. Some of the children had whimsical animal masks. Good enough for me.

A highly unusual crowd for St. Louis. More than 10 people and only one St. Louis Cardinals cap.

always fun to meet other members of H. Sapiens out and about.

I love a big ole drum band or whatever it's called. Love the sound.
