An Asheville Holiday Parade Tagalong

We joined the November 20th Holiday Parade, first as street-side banner holders, and then as an unofficial parade “entrant” after the final float carrying Santa and Mrs. Claus passed us by. Not welcomed by the police, our group was stopped by them but then negotiated that we could proceed on the sidewalk walk with our banners and chants. Once the banners passed the parade stage, the police left us alone to take over Patton Avenue, the second street of the parade route. We had our own mini parade down the wide main thoroughfare and received much enthusiastic support for our messages.

See the tape of the livestream of our one group parade on our Instagram page.  The last photos of the Citizen Times gallery of parade photos  are also of us!
