oktoberfest parade

The Oktoberfest Opening Day Parade starts two blocks from my house, so I went down this morning to participate in the beginning of La Crosse's 50th Oktoberfest Celebration. There were liederhosen, steins, buttons, motorcycles, and every high school marching band within a 50 mile radius. There wasn't much of a crowd.

This 30 minute parade is just a warm up for tomorrow's four hour extravaganza, for which people have already started claiming spots on the sidewalk. But I will be playing Ultimate in Rockford tomorrow and will have to miss the fun. For this year, a few festers and some kids happy to get out of morning of classes will have to do.
