First Annual March for Absurdity brings weirdness to the streets

Denver's First Annual March for Absurdity convened at RTD's Market Street Station on Sunday afternoon. Whimsical accoutrements abounded at this small but dedicated gathering of weirdos, united in a defiantly pointless exercise for the sake of spectacle. But oh, what a spectacle.

While the costumes were all decidedly bizarre, the real show was on the baffled faces of passersby as they tried to figure out just what the hell was going on. Westword briefly spoke to March organizer Esther Hz (pictured above with a bunny head on) and took a several photos of what amounted to a pretty weird afternoon.
