Some people go all out for this event, and here are a few examples! Love the basket on that woman's head. Next time, I'll have to do the same :).

Me, Bobby Kennedy, and Kick Kennedy in character. They are some of my oldest childhood friends and we also work on Riverkeeper together. It was so great to run into them here!
