Parade in Small Town is Still. Parade Goers Walk Instead. 

What an interesting concept, right?  So, this town in Southern Minnesota called Whalan has a parade each year.  But it's got sort of a different concept.  The town is only 2 blocks long.  So, the parade would really have no where to go.  How to fix that?  The parade is still.  It doesn't move.  The parade goers, which normally camp out in the same space and watch the parade go by, actually get up and walk.  Strange, right?  Parade doesn't move.  The people do.
