Today there will be a celebration parade down Market Street for the Giants winning the World Series. The BART stations are packed as it's also Halloween, and the monthly "Critical Mass" bicycle gathering is also happening. Are you fond of crowds?

I don't usually enjoy them, but I made an exception for Halloween on Castro Street when I lived in San Francisco. Really sad to hear they shut it down.

Hate them. That's why I rarely go out. I especially hate Critical Mass. Get the fuck out of the road!!

My friends and I were planning on going to SF today, but decided against it because it's sure to be too crowded.

Maybe next Halloween...

I avoid them like the plague - which they probably have and help spread.

I went to the Seahawks victory parade earlier this year. Waited for a few hours packed in like a sardine. Parade started late & I left....couldn't take the crowd any longer. It was nuts.

Yay giants. They waited 2 long years, overcame all sorts of adversity and united a broken city. I mean, what a story. Whoppie.

Nope, I usually have a panic attack in big crowds. It really sucks, my anxiety has crippled me and I can barely so any of the things I used to enjoy.

I don't have any phobias about crowds, but I prefer not being "squeezed" like that.

I'm not sure if it's easy to spot or not but there are already throngs of people by City Hall just hanging out in the rain

Such a great shot, dear Miss! As I recall, this is your daily view(?)...
It's images like this one, that make feel the "...but you can't take the city outta the boy" thing. :)

I used to not mind them as much before I had kids... Now really crowded areas with the kiddos kinda sends me into a panic attack

People in San Francisco get all crazy about it, there are so many kids out of school today just so they can attend the parade!

BART = Bay Area Rapid Transit (our subway system that goes underneath the bay and connects Oakland and the East Bay to San Francisco and the peninsula!)
