Soaring characters, human soup cans, student dance teams, and handcrafted floats filled the streets of Oberlin on Saturday, May 3 for the community's annual Big Parade. What began as an experiment in 2001 by Claudio Orso, Zach Moser ’02, and Brendan Ravenhill ’01 has become one of the most anticipated college and town events of the year. Several weeks leading up to the event, members of the Oberlin community get together to build their floats and create their characters before unveiling their handy work to the delight of parade goers who line the streets.
