We always visit during Carnival, a week-long summer celebration featuring dance parties, concerts, other sponsored events, and it’s all capped off with a parade down Commercial Street on Thursday afternoon. The theme of this year’s Carnival was “Can’t Stop the Music”: here are some shots from this year’s parade.
Yup, that's Charo, the Grand Marshal of this year's Carnival Parade. Cuchi Cuchi! No disrespect to the lady because she looks great, but there was some healthy debate going on in our gang about how old she is. She claims to be 60. Is that even possible? I seem to remember her "Cuchi Cuchi-ing" way back when I was a kid.
I'm guessing Richard Simmons?
Bruce Vilanch, best known for writing the gags for all of the Hollywood award shows, has been at the parade the last several years.
Our favorite Provincetown performer, Miss Richfield 1981. You can catch her show at the Crown & Anchor.
The last float in the parade proclaimed that the theme of next year's Carnival bash will be "A Space Odyssey".
Check out my friend BosGuy's blog for his video from this year's parade.
