'After the parades, people often hang beads on fences, or wrap them around light poles, or throw them into the trees. During the parade, some beads get stuck in the trees naturally – errant throws from the floats get caught in the branches. ... This tree is a smaller, more accessible one, so some enthusiastic revelers just covered it in beads. It is just one of many, but it seemed particularly laden,' he said.
