Schuman Parade, May 9, 2009

Masqueraders, stilt walkers, cheerleaders, boy and girl scouts marched in the Schuman Parade from Royal Castle Square to Nowy Świat and Jerozolimskie Avenue Crossing. The cheerful manifestation of euroenthusiasm was organised for the tenth time by the Polish Robert Schuman Foundation. At the front rode a platform carrying politicians - Warsaw mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, former Prime Minister of Poland Tadeusz Mazowiecki, Róża Thun, head of the European Commission Representation in Poland and politicians of various parties.
The parade was the crowning event of the 16th Polish European Meetings, the purpose of which was, among other things, to encourage people to vote in the European Parliament elections coming soon, in June.
