Jesus Parade I, Jesus Parade II (Windswept)

The woman in the sunglasses and animal print scarf is the Parade Coordinator, whose job it is, or at least seemed to be, to micromanage the parade... kind of like a wedding planner for Jesus. Or a re-enactment of the death of Jesus. Which I find to be a really fantastic feature of the whole event. I mean, it's not like I have entertained some naive assumption that these sorts of events are unplanned and that everyone just basically shows up and intuitively knows what to do and how to do it. But the addition of this commanding, get-shit-done authority figure really elevated the whole event to another level in my mind.
