This is a fabulous event. The 18th annual Procession of the Species Parade. It was the most relaxed large organized gathering I have seen in a while. Just people gathering by the library, and then walking through the middle of downtown and then partying in the park. Anyone could participate, and there is only 3 rules:
The three rules inspire, nourish, and protect the Procession’s cultural evolution of imagination, creation, and sharing.
No written or spoken words. We use no words, symbols or lyrics in our art, music or dance.
No pets or live animals. We have no live animals in the Procession, with the exception of Service Animals.
No motorized vehicles. We do not motorize our creations which includes the use of musical amplification. Of course, a motorized wheelchair is certainly permitted.
My son, Jackson was technically representing a species of transformable sentient living robots from Cybertron, (Optimus Prime,) but was still encouraged to participate!
