Celebrate How Weird Day!

Last year, the city of San Francisco officially made May 6, 2018 “How Weird Day”.
The How Weird Day Parade started at 2:22 pm at Howard & 1st Streets,
and went to the Green Alley stage for a reading of the San Francisco Proclamation.
The illustrious Emperor Norton I led the parade.
And Mission Delirium performed throughout the parade.
San Francisco showed off their finest weird attire!


With many stages of world-class electronic music
to dance the day away!


The center art from 2018 was the
ZOA sculpture from Chromaforms Art Collective.

Thanks for bringing the weirdest disco ball in the world to How Weird!
