Celebrating Easter, Marijuana and Cherry Blossoms

Sunday in San Francisco featured a whole range of outdoor festivities, from an Easter Parade on Union Street to a 4/20 marijuana celebration in the Upper Haight and Golden Gate Park's Hippie Hill. Further west in the park, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence hosted their annual Easter shindig featuring a Hunky Jesus contest, which is where the two men above spent their afternoon. The Easter bonnet on the right cleverly managed a nod towards the celestial configuration of Easter and 4/20, with prop monster joints and real dope in a fully loaded pipe.

Meanwhile, the two-week Cherry Blossom Festival ended on Sunday with its annual parade that makes its way from Civic Center up Polk and Geary to Japantown.

There were all kinds of interesting looking people assembling for the march at 1PM...

...including drumming troupes...

...a lion dancer...

...and a contingent of people dressed as anime/manga characters.

My favorites, as usual, were the ladies in the fabulous hats.
