As usual there is some political satire.
Some play on words (read the sign)
Apparently now since Mexico is off limits we now get our weed from Canada
The block party was going full tilt.

For some it was just too much.
The Grand Marshal.
An eclectic band.

Even more characters.
Mixing sci-fi and political satire.
Mixing middle aged hula dancers with zombies.

And with that the zombies headed home and the parade was done.
