Chelum Imam Hussain Parade on Devon
Although one anonymous neighbor called 911 complaining about the horse, the celebration was very peaceful, as one person even offered me some food. There was an official permit for the parade from the City of Chicago, including the horse.
For cities in other countries this celebration doesn't go as smoothly as this West Ridge/West Rogers Park parade did. Karchi, for example, suspends cell phone service and barbed wires the city to maintain law and order.
