Through a wonderful comedy of circumstances, Kendall and I were in the Alameda Independence Day parade this week representing Alameda Municipal Power and Tucker’s Ice Cream. Given the power company theme we dressed as Dr. Megavolt and Professor Zap.
As a newcomer to parades I was surprised how personal they feel. You expect to get on the back of a truck and wave to a thousand nameless people, but in reality you get the unique opportunity to stare directly, even deeply into the eyes of real people from your real neighborhood. There is a true energy there. The whole experience was wild and certainly recommended.
Blowing bubbles for the crowd.
