Great Circus Parade made it's way through Milwaukee, WI today. I don't know if it's because I'm getting old, or the heat... but the parade seemed long, spaced out, and a bit redundant to me.
What was most interesting was the events leading up to the parade. People were so intent on getting good seats many people started camping out Friday night on the curb of the parade route.
And right before the parade there were a mass of people drawing circles in the middle of the street. When I asked one man why everyone was drawing circles, he said "If an animal poops in this circle, my friends have to buy me a shot". Yup, a drinking game involving sidewalk chalk, a parade, and feces.
