Humboldt’s homegrown heritage marched through the streets of Arcata yesterday afternoon to show support for the cannabis community. The Yes We Cann Parade & Hullabaloo
event was the first of its kind but most likely not the last.
From old to young, from traditional farmers in plaid shirts to glitter and balloon wearing festy types, the many faces of marijuana in Humboldt were on view.
Organizers said wanted to highlight that “[i]t’s time to come out of the shade and into the light to build a future for sustainable cannabis and show our community that we are loud and proud.”
This older gentleman and his young partner led the parade in a horse and buggy.
The event started at Humboldt State University and wound around the Arcata Plaza.
This float highlighted the connection between music and marijuana in Humboldt County.
Celebrating the connection between marijuana and medicine, this convertible and its crew touted the company Humboldt CBD. CBD is a cannabis compound used to combat multiple medical conditions–including seizures. It isn’t intoxicating.
Banners, bros, buds, and Birkenstocks…
Balloons, dreads, leopard print coats, and face paint…Yep, we’re in Humboldt.
“The Yes We Cann Parade is a celebration of our industry’s coming of age and a shift in our culture stepping out of the shade and into the light,” said the organizers.
