I thought that the Pride Parade in San Francisco was going to be unbeatable in terms of interesting characters. I was wrong.
On Saturday, Will and I headed to the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park. When we weren’t listening to some down-home country banjos or getting squished in on all sides by tipsy hippies or watching a stranger pet a baby she didn’t know, there was some incredible people-watching to be done. Highlights (and this is just the stuff I managed to get a picture of):
- This guy with boxed wine on his back, both red and white. He literally made a backpack by duct-taping two boxes of wine together with some backpack straps, a portable party.
- This adorable miniature husky whose name was “Fumbles”. I kid you not.
- These guys who were flagging down friends with a super tall pink flamingo. Note the joveralls. There were a lot of guys getting away with overalls, and girls getting away with the biggest bellbottoms you’ve ever seen.
- And to finish things off, I’ll just leave these here for your enjoyment.
