Parade in the Circle

University Circle Parade is where Greater Cleveland artists, community groups, families and schools display amazing bright costumes, handmade masks and fun floats every year.

My sister and I went this past Saturday and despite the hot weather we managed to pick a great spot under the tree.  A sweet summer breeze came in and out and we were surrounded by some great company.  It was perfect and lots of fun and inspiring to see all of the bright costumes and see all of the interesting ways the groups had their themes together.

Lots of stilts people. Kids, adults and they where everywhere. It's amazing how they are able to keep their balance in them.
