The sitting on the ground party
Every year on the eve of the Cologne Pride parade, the Schaafenstraße street festival takes place in Cologne’s LGTB bar scene. Usually, it is very crowded so that the best place to watch the vibrant hustle and bustle is sitting at the crossroads in front of a kiosk nearby. This, in turn, provides a good point-of-view for observing the ongoing action.
Here is also a documentation of the Cologne Pride parade of the following day.
