This is not the place for '57 Chevys and tacky political banners. The annual parade on University Circle is powered solely by people and their imaginations. It's a vibrant Mardi Gras without booze and boobs, full of local and international artists, street performers, and area residents celebrating the arts with enormous dancing puppets, human-powered floats, and amazing street performances. Afterward, ethnic foods are served up by area restaurants, and free kids' activities are held throughout the day. What, you were hoping for corn dogs and dunking booths?
