Photos from the doughnut parade
Last Friday I went to the doughnut parade. It got started late, at least partially because the KPDX Street Team Mobile was pointed the wrong way. Also: the parade tied up traffic. And it featured hearses, roller skaters, cops on motorcycles, an ice cream truck, a teenager in a maple bar suit and a kid dressed up like a carrot, as all good doughnut-themed parades should, I suppose.
It was all part of a celebration to break in the second location of Voodoo Doughnut. I've never been to the Grand Floral Parade or the Starlight Parade, despite all my years in this burg. No matter. I'm pretty sure the doughnut parade could best them all in the "Boosting Any Given Citizen's Civic Pride" department.
With its big, iron gate, the new Voodoo Doughnut looks like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory crossbred with a prison and a fast food franchise. I consider this a good thing.
