Optocht Heerlen

More parades, today was Heerlen (Hoensbroek, my home town is part of the municipality of Heerlen).
Over 200 colourful groups walked the parade today. They had started at 12.15 PM, and when we left at about 16.30 there were still some 30 numbers to go.
Yesterdays parade was about elaborate floats and huge numbers of dancing youth. Today's parade was about bizarre and baroque dressed up groups with less elaborate floats.
Anyway, I drew and painted this on location. I had to work fast, as the group would continue to pass, and I had to capture the image within something like two minutes.
