This is the first time I have seen Rex in at least twenty five years and I think it refilled something I did not realize was empty.

The theme this year was “Aspects of the Sun” and pretty much every float was a Sun God.

Seriously when the tail end of Rex passed I felt like something in me was refueled, the whole city comes together for this massive PARTY and that energy floats all through it, holy shit. I got smacked in the face with a bag of beads at the first float, Nick got beaned by a big Zulu medallion. It was good but exhausting.
