The Fremont Solstice Parade

Man, yesterday was a beautiful day here in Seattle. A perfect day for the annual Fremont Solstice Parade. Fremont's gotten much more yuppified in recent years, but they're still the keepers of the flame of goofiness in Seattle, and the Solstice Parade is one event I try to never miss. It's a hoot.

This year was even more especially special, though, since several months ago Miz Becky dared herself to join her Samba class in this year's parade. Hours of extra rehearsals, costume trauma, and nerves -- not to mention, a healthy fear of dancing for two hours in the hot sun -- all ended up with a great time, and no significant sunburn!

This parade looks like it was a lot of fun! Kind of reminds me of a larger version of Ashland, Oregon's Fourth of July parade. Congrats to Miz Becky on her parade samba debut!
