Another MayDay Parade and Festival has come and gone, but how incredible it was!
The free event takes place in the Powderhorn neighborhood in South Minneapolis.
It has been produced by In the Heart of the Beast Theater (HOTB) since 1975, taking place the first Sunday of May.
The festivities bring out more than 50,000 people
and consist of three parts: the Parade, the Ceremony, and the Festival.
The parade itself narrates a story through amazing hand-built puppets and masks, stilt walkers,
belly dancers, unicyclists, painted faces,
elaborate costumes, bikes, music, and dance.
Think of it as a multicultural celebration
through a walking theatrical performance.
If you haven’t been, I highly recommend adding it to your 2019 #MNbucketlist!
