A sure sign of Spring in the South Sound is the appearance of thousands of birds, bees, giraffes and monkeys on the streets of Olympia. The annual Procession of the Species parade takes place each year at the end of April, giving Greeners, State Workers and schoolchildren the opportunity to dress up, dance and drum their way through the streets. 

One highlight of the event is the marvelous Samba Olywa dance troupe, whose energetic choreography is accompanied by a symphony of drums and other percussive instruments. This year, Samba Olywa came dressed as bees. Their colorful outfits and engaging dance moves inspired many spectators to tap their feet and swing their hips. 

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Procession. It is a tradition which is not to be missed.
