The Live picture was taken during the Rose Festival, where there is a nice parade with floats covered with flowers, and a "fun park" on the waterfront. They line Waterfront Park with amusement rides, and the mass of people grind the beautiful lawn into mud. It takes exactly one year for the lawn to recover. Then they do it again.
