After months of "unplanning," the Last Night DIY Parade and Celebration took center stage on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz on December 31st, 2006. After the miserable year that was 2006, the event was a delightful counterpoint -- a truly joyful, creative and inspiring expression of community and the First Amendment.
