Oh, that was incredible – THANK YOU!

Thank you to all of you amazing and lovely people who made the trip last night. We had a blast singing, dancing, and playing in the rain as our lovely and awesome pedicabbers ferried us from Gourmands to the Tillery Bridge, St Rochs, and back again. If you missed last night’s special renegade parade, this is probably a really good time for you to sign up on our mailing list! –>

We can’t say enough thank yous to all the pedicab people who made this magical parade so effortlessly awesome for MMMB. We’ll have to do it again!

And we’re all pretty sure this was the best. Parade. EVER!
