I don't see any live musicians or marching bands, is this not a tradition? Was there recorded music playing?

Now it's getting quite political: The Russian bear, Ukrainia...



And Mama BuKa on the same float; this is the same effigy as before?

The Joker (?)






Not the Joker, but Gene Simmons, a member of the rock group KISS.

Great series of photos, Ingster!  The likenesses were very accurate.

Great pictures of the parade, Ing. I like this more that the "people" ones!

Oh yes, there were many. But they were sitting / standing on the lower platforms or marching.

Since I was standing away from the parade with some distance, I could only zoom in the giant heads. Also, I wanted to avoid the crowds - I didn't want blurry snapshots - way too much movement if you try to take pics through hundreds of watching people.

Yes. The former was a detail, this is the whole float.
