Parades of fursuiters are a tradition at most Furry conventions. What The Fur almost didn't have one in 2011, due to a number of conditions.
However, after public request, and absolutely wonderful weather, more than 30 fursuiters donned their heads and made their way outside.
Well, the hotel is a little small for a parade. And the more suiters and costumers involved, the more space is needed. So it was decided to give the city of Montreal a glimpse at the creativity, the spirit and the fun that What The Fur's members contain!
The route only covered one city block, but the costumers got to give Montreal's main downtown street, Sainte Catherine Street, a good show, much to the ammusement of the passers-by and to the poor people explaining what they were seeing to their friends on cellphones.
Unfortunately there was no parade in 2012 due to both weather, and due to protests taking place in the city. But with the expectation of a new home in 2013 the parade will be returning.
