Minneapolis May Day Parade
Last week, Vu and I went to Minneapolis’s 40th annual May Day Parade. Organized by the In the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater, the parade’s made out of puppet shows, paiper maché, and in the Free Speech section, anybody who has an axe to grind for a particular cause. They march down Bloomington Avenue until they reach Powderhorn Park for a festival.
Both of us had a blast.
It’s hard to see in these pics, but this was a really cool wire dragon.
If you ever wondered whether the Twin Cities were a left-leaning area, now you know.
Either these people have never seen Dr. Strangelove or Spaceballs, or they just don’t care.
… I have no idea.
These folks were in favor of solar power.
Here you can see the muffin boy, who I think was supposed to be a mushroom.
I’m not sure who the worm dude is, but in the background you can see a child being a lichen.
These Aztec dancers were in favor of reuniting families across the U.S.-Mexican border.
They wanted to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Good luck with that.

Did I mention it’s a left-leaning city?
