Blessing of the Animals is a custom in remembrance of St Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures. It's kinda fun, you walk by and a priest sprinkles water on the passing procession of people and their pets.
People usually bring all kinds of animals. The normal type pets, ducks, birds, I think there's this couple who brings their llama's (or used to I haven't been in a while). I've seen huge tortoises there, and all kinds of stuff. My sister is the queen of Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles this year, and she's going to be involved in the event, and I figured I'd join in. I wouldn’t be surprised if I see any other snakes there. Probably someone with a big showy albino or something, I dunno. I just want to make sure that my bp's health isnt endangered.
