Well, since I happened to be in SF already, although I spent the morning at the Science Museum, I had no excuse not to join the parade mid-way. I actually managed to drive down from the Golden Gate Park and find street parking within walking distance without getting stuck in a non moving stream of cars.
I can now see how it actually takes forever since after arriving about 2H late, the parade was around group #140, and still going strong. I basically joined from the end, by civic center where everyone was ending up, and worked my way back up the parade, still in time to see some nice floats, including my coworkers from Google. Yeah!
Street Blocks filled around Civic Center
Pick your color, shape, and size :)
Most companies were present
Although Gold's Gym did win by having the best male bodies :)
Where's Waldo? :)
