It’s Summer Solstice Today in Seattle and The Fremont Solstice Parade Celebrates by Marching to it’s Own Beat!

Pink Flamingo Nude Cyclists at the 2007 Fremont Solstice ParadeSeattle is home to the “Center of the Universe” in Fremont, a free-spirited, funky neighborhood just north of Downtown Seattle.  To celebrate the longest day of the year, Fremont harnesses it’s creative free thinkers into a fun parade, The Fremont Solstice Parade

The parade is a fun mix of humour, creative expression and oddly enough, community individualism.  There is a real spirit of joy and celebration….even if the Sun fails to make an entrance for it’s own celebration…afterall this is Seattle!  The Parade celebrates it’s 20th year today and fun reigns as the Nude Cyclists herald the Parade’s beginning and the creativity ensues. 

I was unable to go this year, but I enjoyed it last year with a few friends so check out my Fremont Solstice Parade post from last year on my original Seattle’s Urban Villages Blog…have fun!
