It was a cold morning, but that didn't stop the animal lovers who came out to the Tiny Totem Animal Pilgrimage. The parade-goers pulled totems representing their spirit animals from Tower Grove park, down South Grand, and back up to the Tick Tock Tavern. Some of the proceeds were donated to the Artica festival.
