This reporter is sorry to report that she woke up at the time the march began, and thusly missed the first two hours of Sistahs Steppin' in Pride 2006. But I did make it to the festival in Snow Park.

Hundreds of womyn were dancing, singing, chatting, and celebrating community in the East Bay. There were more vendor booths than I remember from two years ago. There was a "Jumpy" (I call them bouncy castles), with face painting and other activities for the kids. The performers were excellent, and I am sorry that I missed the Mammaz and Sistas in the Pit.
