Solstice Festival in Fremont

This weekend I had the great pleasure of catching the Solstice parade in Fremont. True to form it was chaos and mayhem in spectacular glory.

My favorite float in the parade was the monkeys jumping on the bed. What a riot!

It was really invigorating to be able to see people just out having a fun frolick without pretense or pomposity. They just were letting down their guard for one day of festivities.

For example, in this picture, one of my good friends was indulging in her love of two favorite things: underwear and tie-die. What a ludicrously lovely scene.

The weather cooperated, and so did most of the people. If you've never partaken, I highly recommend you pull the pickle from your backside and show up next year. I surely will.
