An annual tradition at Porter College
, UC Santa Cruz
. The first night-time rain that graces Santa Cruz
after the beginning of the school year will bring a huge group of free spirit
s out of their dorm rooms and out of their clothes into the falling water. After running around the quad for a while, calling to the spectators "Join us!", the naked
group will embark on a jogging parade
through campus, visiting every dorm in the university. By the time it returns to Porter
, the group has doubled in size from all the nudist
recruits it picked up along the way.
You wish you could see pictures, don't you? Your wish is my command:
I appear in a number of the pics, notably bare-bottomed in number 13 with hands raised to receive the falling rain gems.
