Last Sunday, I made plans to meet up with my best bud Ryan late in the afternoon to watch Red Riding Hood. I was basically free the whole afternoon, so when my friend Kathy asked if I can keep her company in her husband KC‘s friend’s birthday party, I said yes.
It wasn’t your typical birthday party. Even before I got there, KC has been talking about creating a Puerto Rican float to bring to a pub crawl. I found it odd but very interesting at the same time – like John Boehner’s skin tone or Rebecca Black’s song “Friday”. It turned out the birthday party was a parade AND a public crawl ending with a bbq house party.
Apparently, they were having a parade for the birthday girl. It was called the Eternal Youth Parade, and you can follow them on twitter at @eyparade. It was an interesting bunch of friends and everyone had either a costume on or “wearing” a float. It’s funny, because it’s like a parade of parade – the Puerto Rican parade was present, so are Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, Gay Pride parade and the Mermaid parade. Also present were a leprechaun, a lobster, Uncle Sam (worn by someone of Libyan decent – how current and political!) and Santa Claus.
