Today I was bicycling back from the Golden Gate Bridge and got trapped in a surprise Columbus Day parade in North Beach. This happens to me a lot – I am out minding my own business somewhere in SF and suddenly I am surrounded by thousands of strangely dressed, probably drunk people who are in between me and my home. I have been surprised by Bay to Breakers, Pride, Folsom Street Fair, SantaCon, a zombie flash crowd, the Blue Angels, and now a Columbus Day parade. Did you know there was a Columbus Day parade in San Francisco? Neither did most of the people watching it.
Is there an RSS feed somewhere out there for “things happening in San Francisco involving several thousand people that might screw up your day OR even be fun to attend?” ‘Cause I would subscribe to it.
