This parade made zero sense. And I loved it.
Per a great lead from my friend Mindy, Kenny and I decided to celebrate the fourth with the Northside Parade. If you’ve been, you know. If you haven’t, I’m not sure what to tell you…
There were definitely some parade classics – fire trucks, politicians, marching bands, dancers. Then there was just the whatever – a bike gang, lawnchair ladies (literally just ladies with lawn chairs), a men’s drill team (literally men with drills), a yacht club (which I am pretty sure was just five drunk friends who convinced someone to pull them in a boat), and more. There may or may not have been a group of people who just rented Red Bikes and rode in the parade, I don’t know. If I could have been playing a drinking game during the parade, I would have taken a drink any time either Kenny or I said what is happening and would have been drunk quickly. In fact, Kenny summed it up perfectly when he said I think next year, I am going to wear a scuba suit and walk Hank in the parade. So awesome.
So enjoy the many pictures, get a feel for the utterly indescribable parade, and just enjoy America.
