Happy Independence Day, Lebanon!

November 23, 2013

Last night, I had the pleasure of celebrating Lebanon’s Independence Day by watching the parade in downtown Beirut.

Though it seemed like quite a strange way to celebrate independence from the French Mandate, it was entertaining. From police horses, the mayor of Beirut, Harley Davidson hogs and clowns on stilts and unicycles to hundreds of scouts, kids on a tank, Sukleen trucks and even a monkey wrapped in a Lebanese flag, it was the most random collection of groups and floats I have ever seen in a holiday celebration. Below are some fun shots from the parade.
