Parade the Circle
University Circle
June 12, 2010

This isn't the typical parade. With floats decorated by University Circle institutions and participants tapping into their vast creativity, Parade the Circle is as unique as the neighborhood it travels through.

Parade Artistic Director Robin VanLear kept things flowing for the 70,000 or so people who lined Wade Oval and neighboring streets from atop her 6' stilts.

The participants didn't march so much as dance the parade route and even the dignitaries donned colorful togas.

The Parade was the highlight of the day but there were numerous vendors, musicians and entertainers throughout the neighborhood.
