St. Stupid's Day Parade

The 28th Annual St. Stupid’s Day Parade took place today, April 1st, the one high holy day of The First Church of the Last Laugh. As always, it was a great time and I shot a ton of photos.

Since this year the parade fell on a Saturday, we took the alternate route, starting at the The Transamerica Pyramid, Bishop Joey lead us up Columbus Avenue to North Beach. Along the way, we gave old L. Ron a piece of our mind at new Church of Scientology building and then stopped at one of my favorite places in San Francisco, Caffe Trieste, to wish owner Papa Gianni a happy 50th anniversary (he opened it on April 1st, 1956).

Finally we worked our way to Joe DiMaggio Playground for some music, a visit from The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a sing along with Wavy Gravy, a status report from Frank Chu and then a two minute talent show.
