Thu Dec 18 2008 (Updated 01/08/09) Decentralized Parade and Celebration to Return to the Streets of Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz's Fourth Annual Do-It-Yourself New Year’s Parade In what is rapidly becoming a homespun Santa Cruz New Year’s tradition, the Last Night DIY Parade and Street Party took over the streets on New Year’s for the forth continuous year. This year the do-it-yourself, grassroots celebration returned with a parade, street party, entertainment, and performers taking over downtown for an evening of DIY adventure and entertainment.

A manifesto published on the Last Night DIY website states, "Last Night is a completely organic event, organized and put on at a grassroots-level. No city-sponsorship. No corporate donors.” The celebration got started at 5:00pm near the Saturn Cafe parking lot on Pacific Avenue and Spruce Street. Read More | imc_video.gifVideo
