I met up with ARDELL and Rhonda Porter (fellow Rainers) yesterday to take a peek (and we got more than an eyeful with the Nude Painted Cyclists!) at the Fremont Solstice Parade and Fair . None of us had been before and we had a fun time enjoying the weird and wonderful spectacle...what a hoot! In keeping with Fremont's declaration of being "The Center of the Universe" and it's official Latin slogan: "de Libertas Quirkas" which loosely means: "Free to be Peculiar" it The Fremont Solstice Parade is one that definitely marches to a different drummer!
The Solstice Cyclists (aka Nude-Painted Cyclists) kicked off the unofficial parade beginning with creative body paint and joyful fun to celebrate the upcoming longest day of the year.
Then the official beginning of Fremont's Solstice Parade...no words needed...just enjoy the photos!
The Fremont Solstice Parade was a wonderful, creative, joyful, and expressive good time for all, both tall and small! Now, do you feel like you were there? The Center of the Universe is a little off kilter, and sometimes we all need to get off the straight and narrow and get a little wild!
