BRIDGEMEN Easter in the Park: Under the Big Top!

BRIDGEMEN! Every year, our city comes together to enjoy the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as they host Easter in the Park. With this year's theme, "Under the Big Top," there's something for everyone! From the Easter Bonnet Contest to watching guys of all shapes and sizes compete as "Hunky Jesus" to watching musical performers of all genres (This year, we can expect, amongst others, Beard Summit, Cockatelia, and the cast of Hedwig!)... it's going to be a blast!

This year, we want to encourage y'all to represent BRIDGEMEN in the Bonnet Contest! We've seen your creativity in action at our "Boo! Bowl" costume contest and in "Santa's reindeer" costumes at the Santa Skivvies Run. You've got skills!

Our BRIDGEMEN Santa Skivvies-making party was fun last time around, no? Who wants to organize a BRIDGEMEN Bonnet-making party? We *know* some of y'all are in-for-the-win!

We'll make sure to lay down blankets and provide a visible BRIDGEMEN sign so it's easy to find each other, show off your best Bonnet entries, and celebrate our 2nd Easter together as BRIDGEMEN!

    I've learned that The Sisters are planning a Second Coming of Hunky Jesus in April to make up for the rain out. It's sure to be a blast and likely a "sloppy second coming" - as if the park wasn't sloppy enough yesterday! I'll make sure Benjamin's on it! ~Frnak

    This is a post from Sister Roma's Facebook:

    A year without Jesus? NEVER! A new hunky holy one will be crowned later this month.

    Keeping my eyes & ears open for everyone.
    I will post updates when I see them.

    Wouldn't it be great to have a Bridgemen win Hunky Jesus?
    Who's up for the task?

    As most of you know, yesterday’s events had to be officially called off around 1:00pm. The rain would come and go but the last patch of rain was rather heavy. For those of us that braved the rain, we did get to see the Bonnet Contest and some performances but the all important Hunky Jesus Contest did not happen. I appreciate everyone that was able to stop by. We will make sure there is a Bridgemen contingency plan in place well in advance. Thanks again all, we look forward to seeing you at future functions and/or community service events.

    Hey Jay, woulda been nice but could only stay until 1:15 due to a prior commitment. Just as I was due to leave it rained down really hard. The guys (and gals) in drag were great sports but I was kinda a sissy and had a good excuse to leave.

    We're getting clobbered with heavy rain in South Beach, but the radar says it's about to end and immediate forecast says this is supposedly the last rain for D. Park for the rest of the afternoon. Will you guys still be there at 2:30, or will you have moved elsewhere? :)

      Events were called due to the PA system needing to be taken down.

    Hello all, in planning the day-of activities, I wanted to get an idea of what type of snack people would like to have. We will probably have water, juice and/or soda. Adult beverages>on the DL. Send me an email with your thoughts on snacks (veggie tray, meat & cheese tray, crackers, and cookies).

    Is anyone interested in making Easter bonnets together? I have a few ideas. It would be fun!!

    • Benjamin B.

      Michael, are you thinking of a bonnet building party on Saturday, day or night?

      1 · March 28, 2013

    • Michael W.

      Either is fine. Maybe a quick brunch then shopping for supplies, then building them together?

    Is there a contingency plan for inclement weather?

    March 28, 2013

    • Benjamin B.

      I will look into that Jason. The forecast is showing rain but you never know with SF weather. Let's all think warm, sunny thoughts.

  • John D.

    That does sound fun, Michael, but it's just a time factor thing. When were you thinking of doing this?
