The Northeast Minneapolis parade was pretty fun last year, but this year I could barely take it. Was it the hottest day of the whole summer? Quite possibly. I went over to visit the neighbors and tried then to hang out and watch with them, but barely made it a half hour. Oh, well.
I tried to distract myself from the heat by taking photos, but that only lasted so long.
The best float: I ♥ Northeast.
I had no idea there was a Mandarin Chinese immersion school nearby – so cool!
Hey, it’s the mayor, R.T. Rybak. I think he must’ve run down the whole of Central Avenue which is just incredible to me. Because it was so hot. You know.
Sometimes it is very nice when people pose for me. Candids are not always that easy, especially when there are a million other people around. So, thank you, lady on stilts, for pausing for my camera.
