The eighth annual Last Night DIY Santa Cruz paraded up Pacific Avenue on December 31, 2012 after gathering in the Saturn Cafe parking lot at 5:00 pm. Sticking to the tradition of Keeping Santa Cruz Weird, this year's parade was led by local bagpipe band Santa Cruz Pipes and Drums, as well as the Women's International League of Peace and Freedom. Curtis Reliford of the Follow Your Heart Action Network, which brings goods to people in Louisiana who are recovering from Hurricane Katrina, provided music from the top of his trailer parked on Pacific Avenue. Cocoamotion, based out of a roaming red wagon, delivered hot chocolate and marshmallows to parade participants and spectators.
