Elevated view of a wide city street looking down onto a parade. Clusters of marchers, horses and carriages travel in one direction from the bottom middle to the middle left. Large city buildings with wide chimneys on right are painted in perspective going down the street. The closest building on right has windows filled with dots of people. Pastel-colored streamers depicted by fine strokes get caught in the trees planted in ordered intervals. The loose, textured, and energetic brush strokes make for abstracted details and give a feeling of celebration. The sky is painted in soft greys and light blues.
