One of our absolute favorite events in Potrero Hill is Farley’s annual pet parade. I couldn’t tell you how long Roger, the owner of Farley’s coffee has been putting on the event but it’s pretty wonderful and ridiculous to witness. The streets are shut down simply by the mass of people and pets and an impromptu parade walks about a block then culminates in a very egalitarian awards ceremony (any costumed pet who enters gets a trophy). If you missed it this year, make sure to check it out in October of 2008. See more photos from the event here: Pet Parade.
