With the exception of the neighborhood 4th of July parade that involved taping streamers on our tricycles, I've never been in a parade. But it seems to me that the Sechselauten crew has it pretty good: people bring you flowers, there are beer stations, you're accompanied by 500 horses, some folks are dressed like George Washington and the parade ends with a bonfire and an exploding snowman.
We've covered this holiday before on the blog but here's a few shots from this year's excitement:
Townes enjoyed the view from over his godfather's shoulders.
Here's our parting shot of remains from the snowman. The explosion was quick- only about 12 minutes. Looks like we'll have a sunny summer this year!
