For decades, the MayDay Parade and Festival has honored the changing of the seasons, both weather-wise and politically. Boy, do we need this event right now. This gathering is one of Powderhorn’s warm fuzzies of the year; leading up to it there have been fundraisers, papier mache sessions, and practices to bring revelers an eye-catching parade. Past years have included stilt walkers, belly dancers, unicyclists, and giant, handmade puppets. It’s trippy, it’s beautiful, and it’s neighborly. The parade is capped off with a Tree of Life Ceremony, followed by performances, family activities, and more in Powderhorn Park. The parade route runs along Bloomington Avenue South, from 25th to 34th Street.
