Revelers and parade-marchers alike flocked to downtown Palo Alto, Saturday, May 4, to cheer on and participate in the 91st annual May Fete parade.
This year's parade featured two grand marshals, 64 parade entries, 10 decorated floats, music, food and more, all relating to the 2013 May Fete theme, "What will you discover?"
The theme's diverse nature -- fostering exploration, curiosity and discovery -- led to having two instead of one grand marshals, said city event coordinator Alison Williams.
The grand marshals this year were from the Block Preparedness Coordinators from the Community Emergency Response Team and the Cantor Arts Center.
"We've gone from science and helping the community to art programs," Williams said. "It's so diverse and different, showing how many things are out there to discover."
May Fete, the oldest Children's Parade in Northern California, is sponsored by University Art, Palo Alto Toy and Sport, Stanford Park Nannies, the Palo Alto Recreation Foundation, Allied Brokers, the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, Hobees, the Palo Alto Weekly and Palo Alto Online.
