Fremont Summer Solstice Parade Gets Funky

Fairy Fremont Solstice Parade

My favorite Seattle event of the year: the Solstice parade in Fremont!

Bring on the hippies!

We had a typical Seattle cloudy day and my pictures came out poor. All of these photos were edited with Lightroom, the Adobe photo app which I have recently been playing around with. It saved my dark pictures!

Solstice parade: not just about naked people on bicycles (attendees get obsessed!), it is about creativity, environmentalism (there are no cars or motor allowed in the parade) politics (no endorsements allowed) and self-expression.

Highlights this year: seeing my Brazilian friends Bahia In Motion with their 100+ person dance and percussion procession ( I danced with a Brazilian group Vamola in this parade 16 years ago), lots of other dance groups this year and dancing out the parade with a funk band. I was about to leave when the band came down the road and all of a sudden I was in the parade. 🙂

Enjoy the slideshow.
