Default Signs of summer - Fremont Summer Solstice Parade in Seattle

This is one strange parade.

Daz,

Based on just your one shot I have to agree that looks like one strange summer activity.
It however does appear that they are having one heck of a time enjoying themselves.

Aloha

I am sans computer for a will (it is in the shop) and on my cellphone so this maybe a little ruff.

This photo is one of the few photos I can show and they do have a lot of fun. Maybe the beer gardens have something to do with that

It does look like a very strange parade (I saw your other photo posted elsewhere also). At least they are dressed for summer weather.

If you call painted as dressed. That was mostly what they were wearing for the first part (that I can't show here) of the parade.

It looks strange but I think that was not the only strange thing going on in the Pacific Northwest that weekend. I saw a notice on KATU.com, a local TV station, that on Saturday night, a nude bicycle ride was to take place in downtown Portland. 15,000 people were supposed to participate. I never heard anything more about it so I don't know if it happened or not.
