Funk Parade

The Funk Parade and festival is in its third year, and bigger and better than ever.  This year, I was one of the “official” photographers, which in theory allowed me closer access to some events, but didn’t really help much given the size of the joyous crowds.  It was a wonderful day of creativity and celebration.
