LoveParade is basically a 3 day weekend event and DJs from all over the world are invited, there are events that go on throughout the weekend with the highlight being the street parade on Saturday.
Contrary to my mother's belief the parade was not an entirely out of control crazy event...just a few people dancing on port-a-pottie's and hopping up and down on lap posts. However there were of course some interesting things to see, as some people decided to push the fashion limits or the lack of fashion...well or of clothes for that matter.
As for myself...I decided not to stick out too much...and just bopped along with the techno beat and did a whole lot of people watching.
The parade starts at 2 in the afternoon and supposedly runs until 11, although music can be heard from sun up until well beyond 11. Of course however, the techno madness doesn't stop after the Parade...then there are all of the LoveParade parties throughout the city.
