The Fremont Parade was on again recently and as usual, hoards of brave souls got their clothes off and most of them painted their bodies up for the parade in Seattle. The parade originally started to celebrate the Summer Solstice. The theory is that the first person to do it nude may have done so as a dare and crashed the parade.

Unlike the World Naked Bike Ride, this is a non-political event run by the Fremont Arts Council. Some people go to a lot of trouble with their body painting and some participants do it every year. The guy second from the left, above, seems to manage different ideas every year.
