Spring Frolic

Cimg1333The sun never broke for us, our original location was mired in mud, but we went ahead and had Spring Frolic just the same. About 20 people came, some in the obligatory hats, to the Dahlia Garden in Golden Gate Park (which, oddly, lacked dahlias but did have lovely rhododendrons).

For the uninitiated, Spring Frolic has been happening almost every year for about 16 years now, started by Trauma Flintstone née Anderthal as part of the Shaque d’Amour, later the Shaque d’Amour No More. It started out as a pan-religious spring celebration that happened to occur on Easter Sunday. In more recent years, in an effort to court better weather, the date has shifted to as late as mid-May.

This year’s theme was white trash, and yours truly won the White Trash category with my pink flamingo bonnet. DPaul took the Queen Janet Fly Boozy Booze basket for his PBR Beeramid bonnet.

A good time and much fried chicken were had by all. Click here to see photos from the event.

  • Brilliant! Did you make that yourself?

    What a pity you didn’t get to see the sun! I picnicked in the park today, and aside from a bit of a breeze, it was bright and marvelous. Still, judging from by the excellent chapeaus, I’d say everyone had a lovely time regardless.
