Were still mad about the recent kerfuffle about whether kids should go on field trips to the Castro. They might see windows that display things that well I just dont need more questions about! kerfuffed one parent. Uh, yes, lady, we think you do. But the point is, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgences drag-nun Easter in the Park parties always include kids activities such as face-painting (good face-painting, for once, right? Kids know the difference.) and egg hunting. After those are finished, attendees are invited to take their kids home or elsewhere, because that makes sense. And thats how we do family values, rest of country: logically, not superstitiously. The Easter Bonnet Contest, innocent as it may sound, and the Hunky Jesus Contest are neither appropriate for nor interesting to children, so there you go. The pageantry is awesome for grown-ups, though: Hunky Jesus always riles the uptight, and the Bonnets are magnificent and sometimes kinky. Kids would probably also be bored by the sight of Sisters giving away thousands of dollars in grant money to organizations doing good works, but you might not. This year has a hippie theme, leading to puns such as Old Habits Dye Hard.
