I love Fremont. It’s quirky, it’s cool, it’s the center of the universe. And one of my favorite parts of Fremont is the statue of Vladimir Lenin in the main square. The first time I saw him was when I attended the Summer Solstice Parade. A few kids were perched on his shoulders, watching as the anti-fascism marching band and dancing atheist pirates paraded past. It amused me.
Haven’t visited Fremont yet? Oh, please do. Whether it’s a giant troll in a Halloween costume or a naked bike parade, you’re sure to see something you’ve never seen before.
