This Saturday, November 3rd The San Francisco Cacophony Society presents the 17th Annual Penny Potlatch Parade & (Post) Autumnal Equinox Extravaganza with your host, Peter Copperseed. Show up at 2:30pm with your pennies on the corner of Haight & Ashbury by the Ben & Jerry’s and prepare to lose your cents’ of mind.
Itâ€™s time again for the annual Cacophony Society event where we throw our money away! This ritual of abundance belatedly celebrates the Autumnal Equinox (copper IS a Fall color, after allâ€¦) and affords us the opportunity to act silly in public (like we need an excuseâ€¦). Spare change the passers-by (offering, of course); give people a penny for their thoughts; sow the seeds of good luck by leaving lucky pennies for folks to find; dance down Haight Street singing â€œPennies From Heavenâ€ and other overly-optimistic Depression-era ditties. But save enough pennies to ride the carousel in Golden Gate Park! Synchronized bevies of copper-lamÃ© clad showgirls/boys tap dancing lavish Busby Berkeley-like production numbers are always encouraged, but somehow never actually materialize. Never the less, youâ€™ll never have so much fun losing money as at the annual Penny Parade!
Where: Meet at the corner of Haight & Ashbury, SF (Ben & Jerryâ€™s corner)
When: Sunday, November 4th, 2007; 2:30 SHARP! (Remember: clocks â€œfall backâ€ Sat. night)
Bring: Your penny jar!
Attire: Monetary, copper, or autumnal apparel admired
