Approximately 20 minutes into the procession, a car appeared traveling south on 29th street.

Several parade participants had to make way for the car to pass, including a cart and pony. The car slowed at 30th Ave then turned left and continued East.

The vehicle continued on 30th Ave until it disappeared from view. The car and driver were met with jeers from the crowds as it passed.

The parade route was closed to regular traffic for the duration of the event, and it is unknown how the vehicle managed to access the closed street without encountering crowds, barricades, or parade staff.

Fortunately, there were no reported injuries.
