San Francisco, California
[Fourth of July] Super-unofficial Electrical Parade at the Conservatory of Flowers, between 8 PM and 10 PM, “Bring your own blinky,” YOU are the parade.
Remember a few weeks ago I told you that the Conservatory of Flower building in Golden Gate Park will be will be illuminated in psychedelic colors to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love? Wellll… now there’s going to be an flash mob-style “Electrical Parade” held there on the Fourth of July! This LED extravaganza is hosted by the Squirt Gun Mafia who you might remember from the brilliant IKEA Slumber Party event from a few years back.
Here’s some details from the group’s Facebook event:
“Activities may include: break dancing, beat boxing, break boxing, beat dancing, doing ‘the wave’ or at least “a” wave, saying ‘hi’ to that person with the super impressive EL wire wings, wondering what Burning Man ‘camp’ those 9 year olds are from because DANG do they have some impressive arduino skills, revealing (at last) the Singularity, whatever else you want this thing to be (performance artists welcomed with open, wavering arms).”
We’re doing this, right?
