One of the anticipated traditions of Bockfest is the annual parade which kicks off the start of the weekend. Beginning at Arnold's, the parade marches up Main Street until it reaches Bockfest Hall just north of Liberty Street. In addition to the classic displays of goats, bagpipes, and beer trucks, all of the random Cincinnati clubs take to the streets: The Beard & Moustache Society, The Mustard Club, Pipe Club of OTR, The League of Steampunks and more. My favorites are the themed groups, such as "The Bocking Dead," "The Empire Strikes Bock," or Councilmember Chris "SeelBock."
