The annual Mayday Parade, sponsored by In The Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre,
is a long-time Minneapolis tradition. This year, weather was terrific and all the roadwork was finished. The theme is based on the collapse of the I-35W Bridge, just a few miles from the parade site,
which happened between last year's parade and this.
I took a bunch of pictures before and during the parade, some of the celebration/picnic at Powderhorn Park.

Thumbs cropped different than main picture. Surprise!

All pictures taken by Baron Dave except the ones he's in. Corrections encouraged. Return to Dave Romm's Portal.
Pictures are in semi-chronological order. Best to go from one large picture to the next, to see all the sequences and follow the flow from the gathering crowd to the parade to the activities at the park to the MN-STF picnic.
