The People of the Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts: 11 Humorous Animated GIFs

There was no shortage of movement and color at this year's Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts, which took place over the weekend. Besides all of the costumed participants and kooky floats that marched through the streets of downtown Phoenix, a flurry of dancers, hula hoop artists, and sideshow characters performed at the Roosevelt A.R.T.S. Market both before and after the parade.

In addition to our slideshow of pictures from the parade, we captured some footage of some of the eye-catching activity that took place at the A.R.T.S. market and during the parade, which has been transformed into 11 humorous animated GIFs.
