Furries -- members of the strange but strangely endearing "furry fandom" -- gathered in Denver over the weekend for one of the dozens of furry conventions that take place throughout the world each year, at which furries get together in their animal costumes and do stuff. Among other activities over the weekend, the furries had a parade. These are pictures of that parade. I suspect they don't quite capture the weirdness of the scene downtown on Saturday, but judge for yourself after the jump. Photos by the aptly named Anthony Camera.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
