Return Of The People's Joy Parade

People's Joy Parade 2014 1
                       
Every spring for the last several years, a wacky parade about nothing but fun steps off in the eclectic Cherokee Street neighborhood. It was created by local artist Sarah Patterson, seen on the left in this picture with some parade crewmembers. Over time, It blended with the Cinco de Mayo festival that takes place just down Cherokee, more about which later. It's a hoot.

Oh, that looks like so much fun. Love the lady's blue/yellow combo and the amigos in serapes.

I've lived in the St. Louis area almost all my life and have never seen this. And Cherokee Street used to be my regular haunt...but it wasn't an Hispanic community back in the early '70s.

I am getting a strong impression that in St; Louis work is just something that is tolerated between parades.
