Photos from the King Mango StrutMiami 31 Dec 2005 23:37 GMT
It was that time of year again when King Mango and his merry band of Mangoheads took over the streets of Coconut Grove for the 24th time on Saturday, December 31st. Today the streets of downtown Coconut Grove were hit with a major Category 5 Strut. Part of our post-hurricane recovery came alive with madness and mayhem.
The theme this year was "One Disaster After Another", and with the year we had, we need all the comic relief we can get! This year’s Grand Marshal was none other than former Miami Herald columnist and Miami New Times writer, Jim Defede. While there have been controversies with other parades across the nation, the King Mango Strut is an equal opportunity offender. There was something to offend everybody. This past year’s headlines came to life - no one was safe from satire.
