Summer Soltstice

I was in the Fremont Solstice parade this year. It was so much fun to be a part of. I'm a firm believer that everyone should be in a parade at least once in their lives. I was with the Yellow Submarine ensemble. We had Blue Meanies, the Beatles and a host of strange sea creatures. I made a hat for my outfit out of a marching band hat. It was a blast.

Strange and Wonderful Things - The Solstice Parade

An annual event that I love every summer is the Fremont Solstice parade. No veterans and queens here: rather you'll see brightly painted naked bicyclists, outrageous floats made of recycled materials and it's all powered by humans. No motorized vehicles or sign with words allowed. Last year I participated with the Ice Queens, this year I'll be with the Yellow Submarine Ensemble. Here are some pictures from the Ice Queen 2010 dress rehearsal last night. It was fabulous.
