Fremont is famous/notorious for its annual Summer Solstice Parade and Pageant, featuring naked bicyclists. At the center of Fremont's self-proclaimed "Center of the Universe" stands a seven-ton, 16-foot bronze statue of Vladimir Lenin, striding confidently into the future. Two blocks south past eateries, clubs, and pubs is the Fremont Rocket, a WWII airplane tail boom modified to look like a Cold War missile. Lurking menacingly beneath the Aurora Avenue Bridge is an 18-foot tall concrete sculpture of the Fremont Troll. A life-size, lifelike cast-aluminum sculpture of six people and a dog called Waiting for the Interurban graces the intersection of 34th and Fremont Avenue, across the street from local-legendary Blue Moon Burgers. There is a thriving and vibrant Fremont Sunday Street Market year-round.
