The Chron invites the public to “Camp Farley” to celebrate the life and legacy of cartoonist Phil Frank (pictured) on Monday, Sept. 24, noon to 1 p.m. at Washington Square Park in San Francisco. Participants are encouraged to come as their favorite Farley character and join a parade around the park, featuring Phil’s friends from throughout the Bay Area, including representatives from the Chron, the National Park Service, the San Francisco Police Department and other local groups.
The parade will be followed by entertainment by Beach Blanket Babylon, Tried & True Gospel Singers, Bob Schultz and the Frisco Jazz Band, SFPD Parking Enforcement “Precision Scooter Team,” National Park Service Mounted Color Guard & Patrol, and others. Featured speakers will include Editor Phil Bronstein and former Mayor Willie Brown. (Photo credit: Kurt Rogers, Chronicle, 2004)
