At the north end of the lake, vendors were already setting up at 11 AM with the parade to start at noon. Met the students supporting the SAVE the BWCA booth and signed yet another petition there...Grateful to see all the environmentally concerned younger generations here.
Connected with Bob and we met with our bikes near this stairway up to 15th and 34th where the parade enters the park and noticed the purple crepe paper on the railings and just knew a lot of folks would be honoring our local musical son, Prince Rogers Nelson, who was raised here in Minneapolis..
And honoring the medicine wheel, a moving sight for sure.
Another St Louis Park resident, and fellow MKP initiate, Rick "Rocky' Gravrok showed up with a Prince with the symbol of The Artist Formerly Known as Prince T shirt....
Rocky and Paula were telling jokes to enliven the day.
