An odd little parade

This parade is a glimpse into the culture of Madison, Wisc.’s near eastside neighborhood, Williamson Street. As you will hear one of the parade watchers say, “You see anything and everything on Willy Street.”

The parade, on September 16, was part of the neighborhood’s annual fair. It looped quickly around a few blocks, and dissipated into a street party back on Willy Street. Standing on the curb, some parade watchers whooped while others stood dumbfounded. The odd mix of parade participants gave witnesses sense of the unique and expressive atmosphere cultivated by neighborhood residents.
