Hair Balls was out and about running errands when we saw the line of people off Milam around 12:30 p.m. with a man holding a sturdy cross in the front of the procession. Attendants in yellow shirts kept the line off the road and handed out water to the orderly crowd. We saw strollers, wheelchairs, and believers of all ages. Our estimate put the number of people at about 300 strong.

As a reminder of the holiday, the walk served its hallowed purpose, and probably aggravated more than a few midday commuters. At first we weren't even sure what was going on, until we saw the cross leading the line. For more information on the walk, check out St. Basil's website here.
