2013 Bockfest Parade Photos

Bockfest 2013 has come and gone but remains a beautifully hazy memory. Old traditions were continued and new ones were given life. The Inaugural Bockfest 5K was a success with over 1,000 participants in the race, and the annual Bockfest Parade entertained ever-growing throngs of onlookers.

Photographer Sarah Laubacher captured the following scenes during the Bockfest Parade. If interested in purchasing any of the following photos as prints, contact Sarah at sarahlaubacher@gmail.com… or visit sarahlaubacher.com…

    Looking over these great photos I realize what a wonderful set of crazies we had. I was in the parade and as such didn’t see the half of it. Great work Brewery District and Main St. and anyone else who made this celebration a success for beer and sausages.
