My favorite part of Fantasy Fest didn't let me down and the Local's Parade, known to the business sponsors as the Masquerade March put on a display for more or less elaborate costumes and less overt nudity than in years past, by my estimation. The weather was perfect, sunny breezy and low humidity and it was all lovely under the trees on Frances Street.
The Japanese cartoons known as anime are outside my cultural scope. These are supposedly a representation of Hello Kitty. Enjoy.
Chaos on Frances Street. Controlled but chaotic. Some people tried to drive cars through this mess. Duh: find an alternative.
